casual dining recommendation for 1 night in Manhattan

We are two adults traveling with 2 children (10 mo and 4) who are very good in restaurants. Looking for a good and casual restaurant for tomorrow night (wed 24th). Something that will be memorable, good but either cheap or not too expensive (less than $150 incl wine).
Spanish/tapas...japanese, thai, indian, fusion. We are open to any cuisine, even good "american fare" wouldn't be bad.

We are staying near Times Square...but don't mind a subway ride or a short cab ride.

Any suggestions welcome. (for what it's worth, we are coming in from San Francisco)

We have a reservation at Txikito. Perhaps we'll just go with that one.

  1. The weather will be nice--hopefully you can get and outdoor table at Txikito. It's right about your price range as well, assuming you're sharing a bottle or two of wine. I think it's excellent. Don't miss the Arraultza pintxo (sofrito, palacios chorizo, fried quail egg on top). We always order the salt cod croquettas, blistered peppers, and fries with cod mayo. I like the suckling pig special a lot as well. They have a number of specials on the blackboard each day. Also the torreja (french toast) dessert is great.
