21 Club, Estiatorio Milos, Osteria del Circo, Quality Meats Infant Friendly?

Hi everyone! I apologize for yet another new thread but after reading every thread related to "baby/child-friendly" or some variation thereof for the 2 hours, I can't seem to find exactly what I'm looking for... My friend has a 1-month old infant and would like to take advantage of restaurant week. I'm actually not familiar with any of the restaurants participating...

She lives in NYC but this is her first baby and I have no kids (and I'm relatively new to the NYC dining scene) so we were wondering if any of the above-mentioned restaurants would be infant-friendly? If not, are there any participating restaurants you'd recommend? She lives in mid-town and I'm thinking staying close to her stomping grounds would be best...

Thanks in advance for your advice/recs! ^^

  1. I don't think bringing an infant to the 21 Club would be appropriate. I think going to more casual places would be best with an infant. Here are some suggestions:

    Bar Breton, on 5th Av., b/t 28th & 29th Sts. - French
    Blue Smoke, on 27th St., b/t Lex & 3rd - BBQ
    Marseille, on the corner of 9th Av. & 44th St. - French/Mediterranean
    Redeye Grill, on the corner of 7th Av. & 56th St. - American/Seafood
    Tabla's Bread Bar, on the corner of Madison & 25th St. - Indian

    1. re: RGR

      oh great! thx! in the process of checking those out right now! ^_^

      Update: okay so checked out RGR's recs and although they all seem delish foodie options, Redeye Grill seems to be the only one that's in her neighborhood. I know all the other restaurants aren't that far but since she just had a baby a month ago, I don't want to wear her out, especially since the weather forecast calls for possible thunderstorms next week...

      I'll run the restaurants by her and see what she thinks! thanks again for the recs!

      1. Totally agree. Don't bring an infant to 21.

        1. thx for the advice! really appreciate it! thus far i guess it'll come down to osteria del circo or redeye grill... anyone else care to weigh in?
