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?
i hear the smith is a good spot. there is an italian place called russo's avenue b that is supposed to be really good. i think it is on b & 4th st.
Not sure how crowded it will be - but I absolutely loved Allen and Delancey (at Allen and Delancey) They have cozy comfortable booths that are perfect for couples, and which I am sure your pregnant wife will love.
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!)
Back Forty is pretty new...on B and 12. My wife and I went last night and were pretty satisfied. I wrote a post on it this morning that said, among other things, that we got there at 7 and there was no wait, but by 7:30 there was.
