CAN YOU HELP? 3 DAY TRIP WITH KIDS...WHERE TO EAT?
Hoping you can help me find some fun decent places to eat for a 3 day trip next weekend.
We are a family of five. Kids are 12, 11 and 8 and not too picky and well behaved in restaurants. Guess I'm looking for average priced meals.... lunch under $15 a person and dinner up to $25 a person. Don't want really fancy because we will in our "walking" clothes for the most part. Don't mind changing for dinner though.
Our plan is:
Staying at the Marriott Courtyard Midtown East...53rd st. around 3rd ave. Any places to eat around here?
Friday - Museum of Natural History and exploring Central Park area. Need lunch ideas in this area? I think the museum is CPW and 79th Street. Can be casual or we can eat a big lunch and grab a light snack for dinner later.
Saturday - Ellis Island Tour at 10am. So we will probably be looking for a dinner place. Any where in the Midtown Area that you might suggest for a family? Would prefer to make a reservation instead of waiting in long lines.
Sunday - Will be at Times Square. Any places that you would suggest that might take a reservation for brunch or a late lunch?
Open to any and all suggestions!!! Thank you so much!!!
Does your $15pp for lunch and @25pp for dinner include tax, tips, drinks?
Note that you can easily make reservations at many places on opentable.com and use menupages.com to research menus ahead of time.

Lots of options here including Shake Shack and SMAC.
Kid friendly near the Natural History Museum
You can also consider doing a picnic:
Here are some Times Square/Theatre District/Midtown, kid-friendly eats:
However, if you want a taste of real NY, you should consider leaving the Times Square area where there are far more options.

I highly recommend RGR's self guided Lower East Side Gustatory tour:
