Looking for a child friendly place walking distance from Mnhtn Children's Theater

I'm looking for a child friendly restaurant with passable food for a large brood of kids going to a show at Manhattan Children's Theater on White Street (kill me now.)

My husband put together a list of places that are supposedly walking distance, I'd love feedback on any of them or other suggestions. Thanks so much!

Bread Tribeca
301 Church Street, New York, NY

Loscalco Restaurant
313 Church Street, New York, NY

Cucina E Vino Petrarca
34 White Street, New York, NY

Arqua Restaurant
281 Church Street, New York, NY

B Flat
277 Church Street,
273 Church Street

  1. After a thorough consultation with Stuart LaFonda (we both work in the area), we are at a loss. South's is a bar that we frequent after work and the other places listed are rather upscale for a brood of kids. Your best bet may be to head north to Chinatown. If you walk up to Canal Street and make a right (heading east), there are some places along there. If you're a little more adventurous, you can veer off onto the side streets (better food). I am sure there are a multitude of threads about Chinatown on this board. Good luck and let us know where you end up.

    1. Lo Scalco closed. It became Dennis Foy, which has also closed.

      1. How about Walker's? Or more upscale, if you go on the early side Macao Trading Co‎. Depends on how old the kids are.
