Last "date" before baby comes...

Ray | Dec 16, 2005 03:51 PM

In about a month my wife and I expect our first child, and by all accounts it will be months if not years after that until we go out by ourselves again. To complicate matters, tomorrow my inlaws arrive from far away, to help with the baby. Thus, tonight is essentially our last night alone for a very long time. I want to go into Manhattan for a nice dinner. Suggestions are very welcome for a place that fits the following three, often contradictory, criteria:

1. Romantic setting.

2. Pregnancy-friendly. Many nicer restaurants have menus filled with things my 9-month pregnant wife can't eat (soft cheeses, raw seafood, undercooked meats, etc.) That is always stressful for her since she would love to order those things if she could. Simpler, well-cooked food is the best option.

3. Not terribly expensive.

Thanks in advance for your help!
