Just spent school vacation in Manhattan and had some good restaurant experiences:
Trattoria Spaghetto on Bleecker St ( we had pasta with marinara and bread)

Beard Papa's (cream puff bakery)(no peanuts, nuts, or seeds!) near Bleecker st.

Burger Heaven near Rockerfeller Center (Madison and 50th or so). We had hamburger w/o roll and fries.

Outback Steakhouse 919 - 3rd Ave. We had steak with salt and pepper instead of standard seasoning, and mashed potatoes.

NY Aquarium on Coney Island did not have any nuts or peanuts on menu. They use soybean oil to fry stuff. We had the pizza and fries. They also have minimelts (like dippin dots). These are peanut and nut free. They do not have a peanut butter flavor like the other kinds do. This is all they make so no chance for cross cross contamination.

Nut vendors were found around the 50th and Madison Ave area near Sony Wonder Technology Lab. We had to go around the block the other way to get there safely. Otherwise no problems.

All these restaurants had nuts in deserts or salads, but main dishes were safe and the staff was very attentive and helpful.

I was in NYC in March 2008 and had great experiences at the following:
Sara Beths near Central Park South
Mickey Mantle's near Central Park South
American Girl
When I was there, there were actually no peanut foods in those restaurants.

Do you know if American Girl cafe is tree nut free as well, or just peanut free?

If you haven't checked out a blog by Allergic Girl, you should! She has many NYC restaurant recommendations and also started something called Worry-Free Dinners. Very good info.
