Kid-friendlier than Hugo's, Fore Street or 555 in Portland? Are we crazy to bring a 1 year old?

Very helpful! I was looking for a post like this and hadn't found it yet. Thanks!

A friend recommended we go to Hugo's, Fore Street or 555 while we visit Portland. While all three restaurants sound amazing (esp. based on comments on Chowhound), we're a little nervous about bringing our 1-year-old with us to any of them. Could we get away with an earlier (5:30) dinner time with a kid? Or should we look for a place that's a bit more kid-friendly? If so, what would you recommend that - although it goes without saying - still has great food? Thanks for your help!

Thanksgiving Day Breakfast Near Lexington (with a toddler)?

Looking for recommendations on what might be open TG Day for breakfast. We're staying in Lexington and willing to drive 15 or so minutes. Thanks!

Dinner/brunch recommendations in Providence (with a 1-year-old!!!)?

Thanks! Having tables not so close together makes a huge difference when you have a kid that likes to grab things off OPP (other people's plates)! :)

Dinner/brunch recommendations in Providence (with a 1-year-old!!!)?

Thanks for replying. He's usually not too noisy at restaurants (providing it's well before bedtime and he's getting lots of attention from his parents). He's pretty active and messy though.

Dinner/brunch recommendations in Providence (with a 1-year-old!!!)?

We're staying in Providence next weekend during a road trip and would love recommendations on where to eat dinner and Sunday brunch. We're not looking for any place that's too fancy - just really good food. I love farm to table, but am open to suggestions of all kinds. The only stipulation - we need to be able to go there with our 1 year-old and not feel totally unwelcome (don't worry - we'll go early so we don't bother the prime time dinner crowd). :)

Thanks for your help!!!

Which Portland restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner?

I've made reservations at the following restaurants for Thanksgiving dinner, but since we're just visiting for the holiday I don't know which one to go with. Can you give me any recommendations on who has the best food? We also have our 1-year-old, so it would be great to know if any restaurants aren't particularly kid-friendly.

- Saltwater Grille Thanksgiving buffet
- Inn by the Sea's Sea Glass pre-fixe menu

Is there anywhere else that I'm missing (besides Harraseeket - I'm 30th on the waiting list)? I hear Fore Street might be good...

Thank you!
