I am looking for lunch suggestion near Radio City Music Hall. I have a 6 and 8 year old and want to have a fun, easy lunch with ok food. We are planning a nice dinner after the show, but would be interested in any suggestions that are close. Good food that is kid friendly. Also are reservations required please let me know. Thank you

    La Bonne Soupe is always thronged with a Radio City crowd -- and for good reason! Well-priced, pleasant, with plenty of options (French onion soup, fondue, omelettes, croque monsieur) that will appeal to kids. It's always festive and bustling.

      I ended up taking my family to Ellens Star Dust Diner. It was close, fun and very entertaining. It was a great spot to go and let the kids get ready for a real NY experience. We went to the Radio City Music Show after Ellens and would recommend this to any other families with children. The kids we amazed and we created a great memory! The burgers, shake and fries were great. Thank you for your responses.

      I would make reservations this time of year. Some places have up to an hour wait. We went Bill's Bar & Burger, which is right near the tree last time in that area.

        You might like Bar Americain. It's not a serious foodie destination but the menu is solid and kid friendly.
