Please help save a family dinner - Village/Union Square/Soho Area
My father will be in town this Friday and has requested dinner with his children and grandchildren and I need to come up with a restaurant that will accomodate everyone's needs. My niece and nephew are 7 and 9 with typical children's table. We have to go out because my place isn't big enough for a group.
Otto would be a great type of place, however, I just found out that my father is not eating carbs and would like something not pizza and pasta centric. (Yes, I know about the other things at Otto...I think he would rather not be tempted) I am drawing a complete blank. I just need a place that can accomodate eight people, that would be fine for children is moderately priced (Otto ranges)

In addition to the suggestions above, look into Jane on West Houston as well.
Lots of low carb and kid friendly items. And for those in your party who not watching carbs, the tagliatelle with braised veal/truffled mascarpone and the toasted almond cake are pretty amazing.
If you want something in Ottos price range My suggestions would be as follows.
In Tribeca there in Landmarc.Its a nice place and they have a very good kids menu.
Also in tribeca is the Odeon. Its just classic. No kids menu per-se but family friendly and they will bend
over backwards to accomadate the kids. Lastly if you want to gear it more toward a kids place with food for the adults, I guess cowgirl in the village would be OK.
BTW , I have a 7yr old boy so I do have some first hand experience with this. Good luck!
Thank you for these. I feel like Landmarc is a good bit higher than Otto by the time you are done, but definitely one of my favorites for both kids and grown-ups.. I have never been to Odeon, so that is an option. And I guess I should have said that I am doing this search because I may poke my eyes out if I do one more "OK" family dinner at Cowgirl. I have a 12 year old in the West Village and am beyond over it as you can well imagine. :-)

While it's hardly known as a destination restaurant, I think that Friend of a Farmer on Irving Place might fit the bill for you. Very "safe" menu, kid-friendly, but you should check the menu on menupages.com to see if the dishes would suit your father.
