I'm a longtime lurker, but I'm totally out of the loop since I stopped reading the boards after my daughter was born 5 months ago. My husband and I are desparate to get a babysitter and go into the city (we live in Brooklyn) before I go back to work. It's been a long time since we've had a babyless night out.
We're looking for a newish, hip, fun restaurant. We'd prefer south of 14th Street. Money is not a huge issue, although not super pricey. Also, we'd really like someplace we can make a reservation. I'd also prefer to stay away from Italian, New American, French. Something funky, and different, with great food and a fun atmosphere. More Momofuku, less EMP.
