Eating out with a 6-MONTH old is vastly different than eating out with a 6-YEAR old.
If there is an infant, then the menu will only be of interest to the adults in the room. The focus will be on comfort/safety of seating (high chairs), what’s dangerous within arm’s length of the baby (knives, hot water), availability of napkins (clean-up in aisle 3!), diaper-friendly bathrooms (in case of code brown or emesis), space to stash the stroller/car seat, and pace of the meal so parents can exfil at a moment’s notice (naps are directly correlated with parental happiness).
I was at Providence this past week, and noticed new parents (with breastfeeding baby in tow), seated happily in the back corner. Yes, it’s Siberia, but hey, you’re still eating Chef Cimarusti’s fantastic cuisine. AND you’re paying so much there, that the staff will go to ridiculous lengths to make sure everyone has an enjoyable time.
So go to Providence. And get the signature live salt-baked Santa Barbara prawn, finished tableside. Your party will likely be seated in a quiet corner of the dining room, but the food will more than make up for it.
