Lovely dinner last night at B&G with my 6-year-old
My 6-year-old daughter and I go out to dinner fairly frequently. We've been to ECG so often lately that we are on a first name basis with virtually everyone in the front of the house. Last night, we were going to the Animal Rescue League, on Tremont Street, to look for a kitten, so I decided to introduce her to B&G afterwards. We had a wondeful time.
After scoring a great parking spot on Tremont Street near Francesca's (where I knew Rebecca would want to get dessert after dinner) we walked over to B&G and I was thrilled to find that at a little after 7:00 there was no wait for a table and we had our choice of eating inside or out. Rebecca chose a table on the lovely outdoor patio. She ordered the clam chowder, the lobster roll and a glass of milk. I ordered the fried goat cheese and hearts of palm salad, a special of scallops with gnocchi and mushrooms, and a glass of a lovely white Rioja.
The food was great, as always. Rebecca did not love the chowder (she prefers Legal's), but I enjoyed it, and Rebecca had plenty to eat with her lobster roll and fries. My scallops were wonderful -- among the best I've ever had. Most importantly, the service was great: bringing a 6-year-old to this very adult restaurant was not an issue at all.
