I'd prefer to go somewhere especially tasty rather than swanky (we'll do swanky in a couple of months). We will have the (happy and quiet) 5 month old with us.
The babysitter isn't arriving until 7:30 (after the other children are asleep) and we're up north of the city, so that eliminates Gene's. We like every ethnic cuisine and we're always up for something new, so please throw your ideas at us. A night out is a rare treat!
