Downtown Dinner for Five with Baby

foggybottom123 Feb 20, 2009 06:30 AM

We're looking to go out to dinner downtown (generally Wash Sq/Village and south) on a Saturday in mid-March. There's five of us--including a 2 year old. We'd like to go someplace nice but not too expensive. I'm thinking about 30-35 per person. I would have gone to Lupa but we've all been there before and want to try something we haven't tried before. Any ideas? We're open to any type of food.

    The Odeon (Tribeca) - great menu, great variety of price points for all and they welcome babies/kids. Try their calamari and their warm goat cheese salad. Always a "feel good" place!

      There's always Landmarc if Tribeca isn't too far downtown. Disclaimer: I haven't been there for probably at least the better part of a year. I also think that, although solidly good, it's likely to be a real comedown from Lupa (I've only ever been to Landmarc for brunch/lunch, though).

          MIracle Grill, unfortunately, has closed.
