Difficult group, eating near Radio City

Hello, I have family coming in around Thanksgiving and we are going to Radio City and looking to have dinner nearby afterward. We have a group of 8 which includes a vegetarian who doesn't eat vegetables, a person who hates all seafood, and 2 chicken-nugget-and-pasta-eating children (4 and 6yrs). SIGH!
The other 4 of us enjoy good food and are willing to try anything, and budget is not a factor.
Please help me with suggestions!

  1. Yakitori Totto? Covers all the food bases, but may not be able to accommodate a group that size.

    1. Vegetarian who doesn't eat vegetables? What does she/he eat then? Only starchy and cheesy foods? Would tomato soup count? Artichoke dip? A grilled cheese? What about a Shroom burger at Shake Shack?

      Will the kids of the "chicken-nugget-and-pasta-eating" persuasion go for a burger or pizza?

      I'm thinking Shake Shack (if the vegetarian will eat a mushroom), Bill's Burger (if the vegetarian is content with the menu -- maybe they can get a grilled cheese?), PizzArte or Angelo's might work.

        Yes! He will eat grilled cheese or a veggie burger. A shroom burger might work. Good idea!
