Looking for a good dinner place near MOMA. A place that is nice but kid friendly. Any suggestions?

    Lots to choose from within 5 blocks and an avenue or so:

    Wolf & Lamb
    Clubhouse Cafe
    Le Marais

      Cafe K is also in the area, if you want a dairy option.

        You can also through Prime Grill, Kosher Delux and Solo into that mix -

          Is Solo kid friendly? I was always under the impression that it was a quieter/fancier atmosphere?

            I missed the kid friendly request - yes solo is fancier - but depnding on the kidmight be ok -

            Kosher Deluxe is the only one that belongs in the convo from a kid-friendly perspective and I left it out because I think it's not "nice."

              It really depends on the kid. If he/she is old enough and well behaved a nice dinner could be had at Wolf and Lamb or Cafe K

                Yes, and that's why I included W&L. I meant that KD was the only kid-friendly place among Prime Grill, Solo and KD! :-)

          Nargila Grill http://www.nargilagrill.com/
          I was there the other night- very good grilled Israeli food. A little bit of a hike if you do it by foot: you'll need to walk east 7 blocks or take a cab (it's on York between 84th and 85th ) - the good thing is you won't be fighting the midtown traffic to get there. Good service, nice decor, but very family-friendly, amazing pita right off the grill.

            Wrong museum. You're thinking of the Met. MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) is in midtown.

              oh you're right- I was thinking of the Met. Nargilla would not be convenient- save it for another time...
              Sorry about that!

            Wolf and Lamb is definitely kid-friendly (though not cheap). Taken my kids there a few times. Cafe K as well. Also Cafe Classico on 57th - great meat sandwiches and parve milkshakes you'd swear were dairy.

              Is Classico open for dinner?

                I think they are. They have an ad in the Jewish Week saying they serve dinner.

                  Classico is open for dinner during the week, but they are not open on Sunday at all which may cause the confusion.

                Kid-friendly? My vote is for Prime Grill, Kosher Deluxe, or Cafe K

                  Prime Grill is kid-friendly? Kosher Deluxe is definitely out the question. We like clean, and good quality food. Wolf and Lamb might work. I always forget that they are still around.

                    Prime Grill could be kid friendly at a slow hour. It also depends on the kids. PG is also very expensive...
