good place in e. village / LES to bring a pregnant wife
i am looking to walk down to the LES from the 14th and A area this evening with my VERY pregnant wife and am looking for somewhere new to go to dinner. We have done the restaurant crawl many times and hit up many of the restaurants in the area (Momofuku, Back 40, Mercadito, Inoteca, Shiller's, etc, etc)
we are looking for somewhere new to go, either a newer restaurant or a place we have skipped. i know there are plenty of places we should try, but scouring this board and considering the mrs probably wont want to be standing or waiting for a long time (which is tough for the area w.o reservations i know), i am at a loss.
We were considering Alias, but i am not totally convinced.
Anyone have any good suggestions?
The first place I thought of was Seymour Burton, so now I'll just have to say "second."
There's also OG, La Vagna, I Coppi none of which are new but you didn't mention them. Newer places, maybe Rayuela and The Orchard, which if you go early you may be able to get into.
you could try Seymour Burton -- 5th and A. The burger is really good. Just opened in the old Le Tableau spot.
There's also Belcourt which just opened recently. French, 2nd ave and 4th.
And it's not new, but I've always been a fan of Cacio e Pepe -- 2nd ave and 12th.
(by the way, there's a very pregnant woman on my floor in stuy-town, wonder if we live on the same floor!)
