Nervous about -db Bistro Moderne-

mh1188 | Mar 6, 2007 06:31 PM

I've got so many questions about preparing for this dining experience because I don't want to mess anything up. This is my first time dining in New York.

I'm underage and I've got a reservation at db Bistro Moderne. I'm just wondering what kind of nonalcoholic drinks they have. Do they frown upon ordering soda? Do they have mix drinks like virgin pina coladas or strawberry daquiris even shirley temples? I don't want to sit down and sound like a fool in front of the waiter.

How is the atmosphere like? Is it quiet? Do I have to whisper? Can I laugh? Are there any people my age who eat there?

What should I wear? Business? Casual? Business casual? I've read a lot of posts saying people go before the theater so I'm guessing I should dress up. Is black pants ok for a girl? Is a peacoat a must or is a puffy jacket from Abercrombie ok? Heels a must for girls?

Gahh, I know I sound like a novice, but the only other super fancy restaurant I've been to was for prom in DC at a place called Galileo (for Iron Chef fans, Roberto Donna is the executive chef, really good food). And you know you have to look nice for prom.

I really appreciate any help I can get from frequent super restaurant goers. Thanks for everything!
