kid friendly dinner between PS3 and Washington Square Village?

Picking up my 5 year old son from afterschool around 5:30 tomorrow and thinking of doing a dad-son dinner out before we go home. Our fall-back option would be something like Five Guys but I would like something that has options that are a little more upscale or varied for me.

He will be easy with fries, pizza, pasta with butter, rice with soy.

I actually am on a low carb diet for which none of those are recommended. I'd go for meat, fish, salad, Asian without noodles.

I should note that another place that in an ideal world would work is Bare Burger (where I can get a burger with lettuce wrap and and not bread) but for some reason my son can't stand that place.

Any ideas?

  1. Might be too late, but Jane is always a good bet for kids. And Bareburger right at WSV is, in my opinion, better than Five Guys and has more variety and atmosphere

      It's too late for tonight but Jane is a good idea for the future. As I said in my original post, though, Bare Burger is out of the running as my son for some reason took an immediate dislike to it and acts out each time we go to it.

      Thanks for the Jane idea.
