2 babies at a moderately nice restaurant?

chowNYC | Mar 12, 2008 06:55 AM

My mom is coming up for her 60th birthday, and there are 6 adults and two babies under the age of 1 for dinner. One can sit in a high chair, the other one needs either her car seat at the table on a chair or in her stroller at the table. This will be for a Friday night (we're willing to go earlier to score a table).

I know this is a tall order for a restaurant, because we don't want somewhere that is so noisy we cannot hear each other speak, but also not quiet/romantic because we have a 6 month old and 10 month old with us and don't want to ruin other diners' meals. As far as cuisine goes, Italian, American (classic or new), brasserie-style would be our picks, but really a better restaurant for 2 babies is more important than cuisine. Only cuisines that are out are Indian and Vegetarian.

In terms of how nice, something nicer than along the lines of Rosa Mexicano (as an example), but not 4-star restaurant nice. Any suggestions? A 60th birthday doesn't come around often, and neither does the need to have two little ones out to dinner at once!
