      Thanks, I reviewed that already. I should be more clear. They are well behaved children, looking for fun culiarnary experiences.

      The will most likely go to Artisanal....for fondue unless i can find a better option.

      Or perhaps Korean Town so they can cook their own food.

      Thanks though.

        Another good option for fondue is La Bonne Soupe.

    2. I'd encourage you to consider somewhere other than Lombardi's. It just isn't very good. You can get excellent clam pizza at Arturo's, as well as more usual kinds, if you want to stay in that part of town, or you could go up to Spanish Harlem and go to Patsy's, which has thinner crust. Both of those places have as much old New York character as Lombardi's, but with much better pizza.

      1. Max Brenner Chocolate By the Bald Man is a great kid spot. Tons of fun creative dishes, including a chocolate fondue. I wish this place was around when I was a kid! They have a location in the East Village and one in Union Square.
