We're coming to NYC in August and need to find somewhere in the West Village for dinner with friends and our 15 month old. It should be not too quiet (nowhere even remotely serene) but not too loud, which would freak him out. Gastropubs are usually perfect, but we're open to anything else. Reservations are a must since he's a ticking time bomb that can't handle long waits.
We're only going to be in New York for a couple days before heading up to the Cape, so we'd love to find somewhere amazing. Loved The LIttle Owl last time, but it would probably be too quiet and tiny for us now.
Thanks so much!
