Ok, I hope I'm not asking the impossible here, but I am looking for a place in Chinatown that fits the following criteria,
1. Comfortable space for 7 people, one of whom is a (usually) well-behaved 6-month-old that can sit up in a baby chair.
2. We like all the major culinary regions of China as well as Vietnamese, Malay, et al, but the mother of the baby needs to hold back on the very spicy stuff because she is still nursing. So, a really aggressive Sichuan or Malay place may not be a great idea.
3. BYO. If you are not sure about the BYO policy, please post anyway and I will call the restaurant to confirm.
