Was gonna do Violet -- we are bringing our two daughters who are 9 and 6, so nothing too fancy or outre (at this point, "fancy" to them means filet mignon). But Violet is closed Mondays; Joe's is too cramped; Jiraffe's food too complex.
Our youngest has a tendency to get up and walk around the table in search of an open and willing lap; neither of them eat very much either. We just were at Ocean Ave seafood for in-law's anniversary dinner and that worked out well (though the food and service have gone downhill).
Suggestions? Is Nook "nice" enough for a birthday dinner? Would 2117 be a good choice (I've only been there for lunch)?
Thanks in advance.
