The arrival of my baby 11 months ago has forced me away from the lovely restaurants of this city and this board too, I am afraid. So with my mother in law in town, and an offer to sit so we can go eat, I am trying to choose a place that: a) would live up to the expectations, given the rarity of the occasion; b) isn't incredibly expensive (I still have to pay the nanny); c) isn't part of restaurant week, as we won't get in this Thursday. I have never been to Fatty Crab, Spotted Pig and -I know, Brooklyn board, but what can you do?- Marllow. Any opinions on one above the others? Or any other suggestions? Looking for some incredible food, but also a fun place. Please, chowhounds, guide this out-of-date mother!
