4 adults and a child near the 24th st. area of the High Line for dinner? Co or something else?

We're walking the High Line tomorrow around 5 and then will be looking for a place for dinner. Here are some of the criteria:

1. two of the people eat fish but not fowl or red meat.

2. we will have a 5 year old with us and he likes pizza, pasta, fries, hot dogs.

3. despite the 5 year old's food preferences, we want something more than just what he likes. A nice restaurant but child friendly.

4. it would be good for it to be somewhat quiet so we can talk. We'll probably get there around 6 to 6:30 so that should help.

We were thinking Co. Would that work or something else? Co doesn't seem to take reservations so a back-up idea would be good too (esp. as the 5 year old might start melting down if we have to search desperately for an alternative?

Any thoughts would be great. Thanks!

  1. Westville on 18th and 8th is pretty kid friendly and pescatarian friendly. Not sure how loud it would be at that time though.

      Do you know if it has wine/beer (much appreciated by the adults after the high line walk!)? I can't tell from the website.

      1. re: adorno

        I believe it's beer and wine only, no liquor. I'd call to confirm.

        Also "The Porch" on the High Line has beer and wine as well.

    2. If you're dining before 6:30 pm, you should be able to get a table at Cookshop without a wait. I see kids there all the time.

      You could also try Tap Room at Colicchio and Sons though it's further south on 15th St. and 10th Ave,
