Casual UES lunch on Sunday with kids

freshlycured Feb 15, 2012 09:47 AM

Getting together with cousins on the UES Sunday for brunch/lunch. We'll be 6 adults/2 boys (8 & 6). Looking for a casual place, but with food interesting enough to make the meal worthwhile. My boys will eat just about anything. All recommendations are welcome (burgers, asian, mediterranean, bbq, etc.) Thanks.

      Toloache 82, on 82nd, b/t Lex & 3rd, serves delicious Mexican food and has an interesting brunch menu. Family-friendly. They take reservations.

        Atlantic Grill could work: varied and very good brunch menu, friendly staff, and great with families.

            We had a great, kid-friendly meal (8 adults, 4 kids ages 9-14) at Jones Wood Foundry (76th btwn 1st & York). It's British comfort food done really well. Our beer and cocktail connoisseurs were really happy with the available selections. Loved the Scotch eggs, bangers and mash, Yorkshire puddings, fish & chips, and banoffee pie. If your party is large, try to reserve the communal table next to the garden. Oh, and make sure you check out both bathrooms.

              Lexington Candy Shop is a step back in a time machine

                Lexington Candy Shop may be a step back in time, but most of the food is lousy, the service obnoxious, and it's rushed and uncomfortable and not a place for a group of 8.

                  Al Bustan is not UES. It's Midtown East.
