High Line Park - lunch

We will be checking out the High Line Park in March, on a weekend. We have several kids in our family and I'm wondering if anybody can recommend a good lunch spot? Thanks!!

  1. How old are the children? Do you want a menu with breakfast- or lunch-type dishes? If the latter, cuisine preferences? Any avoids? Per person budget for food only?

      Hello - five kids ranging from 3 to 15 (yes - big family!). Either breakfast or lunch type is fine. Definitely something on the casual side. No budget, as long as it is quick and good. Thanks!

        I would suggest Co. Pizza, on the corner of 9th Av. & 24th St. Co. Pizza photos:

        As much as I love the High Line, I would never go up there in March. But since you are from Toronto, I'm guessing our cold weather will feel balmy to you. It's actually been a pretty mild winter here. I hope it continues into spring. High Line photos here:

              We ended up going to Scarpetta for dinner, then picking up the High Line and walking north to the end. We each had to have the famous spaghetti in tomato sauce - although it was really good, I'm not sure it was worth $24. The little warm sandwiches with meat and cheese in the bread basket were delicious - we ordered a couple of extra baskets. Yes, I know - we weren't very adverturous in our ordering that night! Kids enjoyed it and hey - if they're happy, I'm happy.
