        I don't think so. I have never seen any there. If you want someplace with food of this caliber where you can comfortably bring them, try Convivio.

        1. re: rrems

          Have you seen children at Convivio, rrems? We've only been once since it morphed from being L'Impero, and I still seems more like an "adults only" kind of a place to me. Of course, one can take well-behaved children to just about any restaurant....

          1. re: RGR

            Yes, not a lot, but I have seen a few family groups there both when it was L'Impero and since it has been Convivio. In all cases, everyone looked very well-dressed and well-mannered.

    1. My experience at Scarpetta:
      Priced very well versus restaurants of equal caliber.
      Dress code was business casual or better.

      1. Here's another thread, in which I listed some of the prices at Scarpetta. I think it is pricey, but not too much so, and it is worth it.

        The night I dined there I did see children there - happily eating spaghetti with tomato and basil - so yes, they can go.

        Dress can be casual, many dress a notch or two better.
