I am responsible for reserving for a dinner that will include someone in his 70s and a 5-year-old. I've dined at Plum in the past but only post-8pm. These people want to dine early-bird and in the East Bay (Oakland or Berkeley specifically). I live in the city and don't have kids so I'm at a loss.

Will Plum be okay with a child at around 5:30 or 6? If not, what would be an appropriate alternative? Price isn't really a consideration, but with a kid I'm assuming we won't want anything too formal/quiet. And with an older person I think we can't go too casual. In fact the other thing about Plum that gives me pause is the service.

Suggestions welcome.
