Getting Back In the Game!

SunGlow | Nov 23, 201401:26 PM     4

Hi there, I used to head out to all the yummy new places, but severe gestational diabetes and now my two year old twins put quite a damper on my days out :) However, my birthday is coming up and I'm looking for advice on where I should celebrate.

I am especially considering Sarma, Alden and Harlow, Ribelle and Puritan and Company, but am open to suggestions. We will need to drive in case we need to rescue our babysitter, so that is leading me towards Sarma or Ribelle, but we'd try to make it work if I got a strong recommendation in another direction. I am looking for something laid back, and frankly, I'm pretty excited to be eating anything that someone else cooked for me, so I don't have any real genre of food in mind. I am unable to drink so cocktails, etc, aren't a real draw for me. Pre-baby, I loved Oleana, Craigie's Brunch, Bondir and Russell House Tavern.

I get very few nights out, so here's hoping I can make it a good one!

Sarma
Alden & Harlow
Oleana
Bondir Restaurant
Russell House Tavern
