I'm planning a trip with my husband and young daughter and could use some advice on places that would be hospitable to a squirmy toddler at lunch and a few early dinners. We're also planning to get a babysitter for one or two nights, so any recommendations of excellent places for dinner and cocktails (don't have to be the same places) would be much appreciated.
Garden District is where we'll probably stay, so I was already thinking Casamento's and Camellia Grill for lunches. Any lunch spots that are casual and serve food on the healthier side?
For our evenings out, I was thinking of Commander's Palace or Delachaise and August (which I tried for the first time in 2007 and loved).
Can you suggest any bars with good atmosphere where we could linger over drinks one of those nights out? I was thinking Vaughn's Lounge might be fun, if Kermit is playing, but is it too far to go?
Thank you in advance!
