New Haven (or vicinity) suggestions for MIL's big birthday lunch with kids?

sally30 | Mar 20, 2009 05:34 PM

We are looking for a good restaurant to celebrate my mother in law's 75th birthday. There will be 10 of us - 6 adults and 4 kids (age 4 and under). The inlaws live near New Haven and other relatives are coming from Providence so we want some place in New Haven or east. This is for a sunday afternoon lunch. I have been looking online as I am not very familar with the New Haven restaurant scene. We would love someplace with good food, good service and not too small or quiet for the kids. It is a big birthday so somewhere with good service that will make it a special meal for her would be great. Some place big or where we could step outside with the kids if needed would be great. A hotel restaurant with good food would be ideal or even a small neighborhood place that has a bit of room to move in it is fine (my experience with a toddler is that a small cramped restaurant is bad for everyone). We are open to all kinds of food and the kids eat everything so that is not a concern. Any suggestions? some place outside the city, maybe in a more rural setting, if not too far to get to, could be good too. Thanks!
