I tried to get into Babbo next month when I will be in town from Chicago, but couldn't even get through on the phone lines. Unfortunate, because I was dying to experience the pasta menu with my wife for an anniversary dinner. I am aware of the bar option, but we have two toddlers in need of a babysitter, and cannot get to Babbo that early.
Any suggestions for a good alternate restaurant. It doesn't need to be italian. We are looking for something memorable, but not necessarily off the price-charts.
