New parents: where to go for celebratory dinner?

  • 3

Our three week old baby will be cared for by Grandma while Mom and Dad celebrate their first anniversary tomorrow at an early dinner. Any ideas for a restaurant in Brooklyn (north of Flatbush /Prospect Park South preferred) with great food, quiet enough to be able to hear each other and little wait time for a table? Cost not an issue.

Thanks in advance

  1. Not sure about your geographic requirements since Flatbush runs more N/S than E/W, but we've never been disappointed with Palo Santo on Union St (btw 4th and 5th). Different than the usual thing.

    I also know that shortly after our kids were born, sushi was high on the agenda (I brought it in to the hospital for me and my wife the day each kid was born, in fact) - the board consensus on #1 in the Slope/PH area is Taro Sushi (now on Flatbush at 6th, it appears), my favorite in my hood is Ki Sushi (Smith between Dean and Pacific near the F).

    Lastly, Convivium Osteria (5th and ?Bergen?) gets uniformly good reviews on this board and with good reason.

    Mazel Tov, twice over!

    1. iCi is in your neighborhood and would fit the bill. The food, New American, is good and the atmosphere is adult without being stuffy. It got a star when the times reviewed it.

      1. Not clear where you are geographically. If you are near Prospect Park South, Purple Yam is a very nice place with interesting asian cuisine, restful stylish decor and good service.

        If you are in Prospect Hts or Park Slope, I agree that Convivium Osteria is very good, also Aliseo Osteria del Borgo (Vanderbilt in Prospect Hts).
