Type of food? Age of kids? Budget? A little more info here would help us help you.

If there at the age when they like video games, then check out ESPNZone. My nephews love it!

The girls are 10 and 12 - I don't mind spending some money as long as it is something they will enjoy - they will eat almost anything and enjoy shopping and dining out

A lot of kids enjoy Ellen's Stardust Diner. It's basic diner fare - but not bad - but the big attraction is the singing wait staff. (Fun plus food - without all those awful chain places with the same micro-nuked food as at the local mall.)

Or - if you want to splurge a little more go to the Rock Center Cafe - they can watch the skaters while they eat.

check out menupages.com for diner reviews and actual menus.

Serendipity comes to mind right away as the quintessential pre-teen dining favorite.

If they are adventurous eaters, maybe they would like going to a Korean or Japanese bbq restaurant, or eating sushi? I'm not sure if they've been exposed to these types of food, but it could be fun. I remember going to an Ethiopian restaurant when I was about 10 and thinking it was so cool that I could eat with my hands

Love Bubba Gumps, a tourist place but I made reservations early in the week and walked right thru to our tables. The food is okay and prices are NYC - but the kids loved it. The show was Hairspray and they also loved that, we have been singing all the songs since then. the girls were 10 and 12.
