Casual UES lunch on Sunday with kids

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.

  1. Lexington Candy Shop is a step back in a time machine
    Al Bustan for fabulous Mediteranean

      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.

      1. 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.

        1. Untitled at the Whitney could work.

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