last minute ideas?

We were going to go out wthout children for a 50th brthday celebration tomorrow, but the babysitter justcancelled. Any ideas for a nice dinner with two 6 year olds and a 3 year old? We are in White Plains, so Ossining and south or lower Farfield would be okay. Not too loud would be good, too.

  1. definitely city limits in white plains.....given the last minute thing......they cater to kids and will cater to the adults as well........great ambiance........great wine/ is always consistent........and decent service to need for a reservation.........

      I beg to differ southlake. While I'm not a fan or City Limits in generally and I realize there are others besides yourself who do enjoy it, I definitely wouldn't don't think it particularly good for a birthday celebration.

        given the short notice, being on a weekend, i think it would be a good place to accomodate a group of people.......and it is a good bang for you's definitely not super upscale by any means........but it is a good "last minute" alternative.......what's your beef with the place laylag?

    2. Red Hat in Irvington just expanded...might give them a try.

      1. Laguna (family style), Grazziella's, or Zanaro's all in White Plains. If you want to go the Japanese Habachi route, then Noda's in White Plains is also good and I think reasonable...The kids would love the show the chef puts on!!
