5 year old wants pasta & steak

My 5 year old daughter only wants pasta and steak for her birthday. Does anyone have a recommendation for a place we can get a good, but affordable, steak preferrably in mid-town (but other recs appreciated) on Sunday afternoon? Thanks!

  1. Landmarc has solid (if not revelatory) food, including both steaks and pastas. Open in the Time Warner Center and at least the Tribeca location is reportedly child-friendly.

        Thank you everyone, we did go to landmarc and my daughter loved her little steak, and my husband loved his burger. So we won all around!

          1. Italian restaurants are, of course, the first place one thinks of for pasta. However, just about all of them have at least one steak on the menu.

            Trattoria Trecolori, on 47th St., b/t B'way & 8th Av., is a favorite of mine and many other Hounds. The homestyle Italian fare is well-prepared and delicious. Lots of great pasta options + one steak -- a grilled sirloin -- @ $21. Since I've never tried the steak, I can't say how good it is. Service is friendly and efficient. The large space has attractive decor and comfortably-spaced tables.

                tony di napoli is an upset stomache waiting to happen. The Landmarc suggestion sounds good as well as others on the thread.
