...but not Tutta Bella

equinoise | Apr 11, 2011 05:26 PM

We have some friends visiting this weekend from CO, and wanted to get them out for a memorable dinner Friday. We have two babies with us (under one year). Also, the couple we are hosting like eating fish very much but not mammals.

I called Sitka and Spruce (my first choice for this occasion) to inquire, and was told they have no high chairs and no "kid's menu." I recall from my last visit that they had not many if any tables that were larger than 4 but not considered communal, which the person I spoke with reminded me of. Although I was assured that they would abide "well-behaved" children, the phone conversation did not seem encouraging. Maybe they'd really prefer not to have kids--which I personally understand--but did not want to just say it.

Can anyone think of some place with great locavore-ish food of the moment that would tolerate two babies that I am overlooking at the moment? My top choices for this sort of cuisine (S&S, Crush, Corson, Tilth, La Medusa, Book Bindery, etc) just don't seem appropriate for our young ones. I was thinking perhaps sushi at Kisaku or maybe Monsoon/East? Would Local 360 work?
