Need informal dining restaurant for North Cove Marina/ World Financial area
There's not much in the immediate vicinity that's anything to write home about, buit that said, you might not be looking for anything to write home about. There are lots of casual (though I find overpriced, as it's a bit of a toursity area) eateries in that area, though. Main questions would be, a) how far (in minutes, say) would you be willing to walk, and b) what kind of price are you thinking about - obviously the 18 year olds aren't going to be drinking, so that keeps the bill lower, but let's say total per person including tax/tip.
Toloache is in a completely different part of town. See the map to the right - it's the little "D" way above everything else - not even sure why they came up.
I think Bloombee meant Toloache Tacqueria on Maiden Lane, which is a smidge closer than West 50th but a bit of a hike from the WFC. I say, unless the teens are food snobs, just plop them down in PJ Clarke's or Southwest and be done with it. They ain't destination joints but they won't kill you either. (BTW, had the pork tacos last weekend at TT and they were pretty darn tasty).

Recently started working in the WFC, but do not have many great suggestions. In the WFC complex itself, sit down options include SouthwestNY (southwestern) , Au Mandarin (chinese) and PJ Clarkes (burgers) but I have not been to any of them so have no input for you. I have been the the Grill Room, and am not a big fan of anything but the view, and I eat a lot at Yushi (sushi and thai/japanese) but its order at counter and bring your own food to the table. I think BLT Bar & Grill in the W Hotel and Ruchi for indian (Greenwich and Cedar St) are decent and both are close by. The cheap eats I have really enjoyed are a bit of a hike east (ie Alfanoose for middle eastern and Toloache for tacos). have fun!
