I don't know how old your kids are, but.... Dizzy' s is okay but, last time I checked, they didn't open for dinner until 6:00, which may be late for really young kids. A couple of Italian places are good, such as Anthony's on 7th Ave. They don't specifically have a kids' menu, but they are happy to split an order of pasta. Peppino's (5th Ave.) is a very casual place, but they have great pizza, pasta, salads, etc. Also willing to split orders for kids. Another fun place for kids is the Ginza Hibachi place on 5th Ave. Okay, it's not the best Japanese food in the world, but kids usually love watching the little "show" they put on while cooking the food in front of you. Hope that helps.
