Please suggest restorant for an early Sunday dinner/brunch for 7 ppl and a baby in Midtown

We plan to celebrate our baby's birthday (she is turning 1) and want to get together with our parents and a couple of relatives around 2-3pm on Sunday in Midtown Manhattan (20-40s Streets, anywhere from 6th to 1st Ave). Lots of places have brunch on Sunday which can mean crowds, difficulty in getting a table and lack of space - would be a problem for us, obviously (baby + stroller).

In terms of food, we like Asian (Chinese, Thai, Japanese/Sushi), Italian, American, Latin, Mexican, and are not very picky as long as it's not too expensive. Would prefer not to go to a Diner or Pub.

Thanks in advance!

    Let us know what not too expensive means to you (exclusive of tax, tip, drinks) and I imagine you'll get lots of ideas from people.

      I am talking about restaurants that one would not call fancy/posh/expensive; I guess if we are talking about Italian, the pasta dishes would be in the $10-16 range; for sushi, the regular rolls would be $5-7, and where a glass of wine can be had for 7-9 dollars, etc. We don't have a defined budget.

      It's not going to win any culinary awards, but places like Hill Country would be pretty convenient. You won't wait for a table, the food is fast, it's cheap, and there is plenty of space for your stroller/high chair. The Petite Abeille near Stuyvesant Town (I think it's on 20th and 1st ave?) is also baby-friendly and decent for brunch.

        How about Wu Liang Ye on 48th St? Reliable Szechuan food, and they take reservations for large parties. And definitely within your budget.
