Please help!! Need to find a top notch restaurant where I can bring my 8-month old daughter
Kindly help a fellow chowhound in a dilemna! Am planning a dinner with family the day after thanksgiving and cost is no consideration. So need to find the best restaurant where it would be appropriate to bring my 8-month old daughter. We're planning on a 5:45pm dinner and my daughter is not fussy (famous last words, i know).
Anyone have particular experiences to share themselves?
You could try Balthazar - pretty high noise level so I would suspect a young child would go unnoticed.
I brought my daughter to lots of places at that age without any problem. Union Square Cafe might be a good choice: it's sedate, the tables are well spaced, and their attitude in general is very accommodating. Similarly, on my last visit to Gotham Bar and Grill I observed a family, including young, well behaved children (although not infants), enjoying an early dinner and, as you would expect, the restaurant was very accommodating.
at 5:45 i would think most places would be fair game
if you are concerned about the baby factor i would try Blue Smoke or maybe Maya. friends of mine brought a 5 month old to maya last month on a saturday night and forewaned them that we were coming "with stroller" and they had no problem with it.
