Children are welcome. It is a great restaurant and the food is delicious. As I am not vegan, I can't say for sure if they have variety of options.

Description
STATE Grill and Bar, an elegant Empire State Building restaurant, is the best place for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Midtown. Classic dishes harken back to the way food used to be prepared – from a modern chef’s point of view. Guests can watch their food being prepared in the open kitchen by our chefs, who are inspired by the Empire State and its bounty of market ingredients, from the Hudson Valley to the North Fork. Echoing the Empire State Building's striking aesthetics, the interior features a balanced design of art deco and modern architecture.
