Where can grown-ups and toddlers hang out together in New York?

Where can adults and kids hang out together in New York? We're visiting New York, where we used to live, for a weekend. We want to arrange an informal gathering so we can see all our friends. Last time we did this, we held it at Bar Veloce in Chelsea, which was perfect. But that was before we, and many of our friends, had small children. What's a pleasant place to meet in Manhattan where 25 or so adults, many accompanied by babies and toddlers, can hang out for a Sunday evening, talk, get drinks and something to eat, and not worry that our kids are going to destroy something?

Help me remember a children's book from long ago...

Trying to remember a particular children's book. I remember two details (and keep in mind that I might be conflating two different books). I think it was set in New York, in an Orthodox Jewish family, in the past century. One of the characters (I think a girl) likes to buy a pretzel stick and lick the salt off first. And the house rule for dinner was: eat veg first, then rice, then meat, then dessert. If you didn't finish one course, you didn't get the next. Any thoughts on what this book(s) could be?
