I know this has been covered hundreds of times before, but this is a slightly more specific request than usual, but where are your most chowish restaurants in St. Paul or Minneapolis that are also baby friendly? Any cuisine will do, and price range will do, but the requirements are great food and very easy to bring your little one. And by that, I mean places that really welcome children, not places you can make it work with children if you are very prepared and determined. I want to know the places to go if you're a scatterbrain or just want to be spontaneous, so here what are my requirements
Parking reasonably available (given that ice and snow and cold season is looming)
High chairs or booster seats provided
Changing table in bathroom
Provides sippy cups and/or table toys a bonus, not essential. I think this is very rare.
Also, what are your best tips for dining out with babies at places that aren't baby friendly per the above, but would otherwise work if you were more prepared? Do you keep a portable high chair and/or booster seat in your car? Do you bring along a sippy cup and snacks or foods and feed the little one while you eat?
