I'm having a baby in three weeks, and I was thinking I might like to go out for a nice dinner with my husband (grandmother will be happy to babysit big sister, but from experience leisurely meals and babies do not mix for at least a few years). Where should we go? Ideal restaurant would be:
Destination, but not crazy expensive. (from experience, babies are also crazy expensive)
Not impossible to get a reservation with a week or two notice (I was thinking Osteria Mozza, but I don't really want to eat dinner at 5 pm)
Not really predicated on a great wine or cocktail list or raw fish or shellfish (I'm not the most conservative eater when pregnant, but I do have some limits)
Any suggestions? We live on the east side, but we're willing to drive.
