Kid Friendly Pasta Spot for NYC Marathon

I've seen lots of posts on each topic separately... but I'm heading up to NYC for the marathon and need to load up on carbs the night before, along with my kids (2 and 4). Looking at spots like La Zie and Via Emilia (anywhere that's subway-able from times square is fair game) - but, can't tell which spots might be good for the kiddies... ideally a spot that at least has a high chair - bonus points if there's a kids menu, but not essential.



Via Emilia

  1. Via Emilia is better for kids than Le Zie

    I'd try the UWS though as the marathon energy is better. Check the link below

    Le Zie
    172 7th Ave, New York, NY 10011

    Via Emilia

    1. Most restaurants that I've been to do not have high chairs.

      If you take msny98's suggestion of the UWS, the one place I know has high chairs is Celeste. House made pastas are good.

      ETA: they do not take reservations and so the wait can sometimes be long. It is always bustling. I'm not sure if they are cash-only.
