Final pre-baby date night!

Hi all, hubby and I are expecting our first child VERY soon and are hoping to sqeeze in a final nice dinner out. For a quick frame of reference, our former go-to would have been Tempo- great food, but also a civility (in terms of service, as well as things like sound level and spacing of the tables) that has become increasingly rare. We also love Convivium, but have been pretty recently and would prefer something different.

We're not looking to spend tons of money, looming baby expenses and what not- preferably around $100 for everything. I'm not drinking, and my husband seldom has more than a glass of wine.

We eat tons of ethnic food, so I'd like something slightly "fancier" than our usual- maybe French or new American of some sort? We have a car and are happy to go anywhere in Brooklyn. Also, given my currently massive and exhausted state, we'd prefer somewhere with reservations or minimal wait for early weeknight dinners, where I won't have to drag my belly over the neighboring table in order to sit down.

Thanks for any suggestions!
