Fine Dining With Your Tot?

Shivani Vora wrote an interesting piece on eating out  with children in Manhattan for The New York Times.  More specifically it's about the increase in the number of swanky establishments offering amenities (high chairs, places to store a stroller) or tailored menu items for the 3- year and under crowd.
Meenakshi turned 2 last weekend — we celebrated at Café Boulud, where she selected her raisin-walnut roll from the bread tray to go with her goat-cheese risotto balls, and finished with a milk chocolate and peanut butter bar plus chocolate tuile (they wrote “happy birthday” on the plate), followed, of course, by the signature madeleines. She has been to some of New York’s finest eateries, finding obliging staff and a hint of culinary adventure in an otherwise uninspired diet. (And, I’m sure, some fellow diners who had paid for baby sitters and were perturbed at her presence.)

If you have kids, and either live in New York or are going to be visiting New York, the full article does list some restaurants that may be worth trying.

I personally think it would be great if high-end restaurants considered offering special family friendly dining sometime during the week or month.  I love to eat out and I love exposing my kids to new culinary delicacies, but I hate the idea of torturing other people with my children.
