Recommendation(s) needed for Somerville / Bridgewater / Raritan area?

My husband and I are looking for a place to have dinner this weekend while staying in Branchburg. My sister-in-law recommend some restaurants in Westfield, but I'd rather not drive from Branchburg to Westfield and back. I don't care if it is fancy, not fancy, sushi, italian, steak, BYO or liquor license, etc. I just want it to be nice enough that there won't be 3 yr olds running around since mine will be at home! :) I'm just looking forward to enjoying a meal & uninterrupted conversation with my husband and not having to cut up somebody else's food first, you know? I've read up online about a few BYOs in Somerville, but I hate trying a place without input from a 'real' person. Thanks in advance!

yeah, I don't think I'd take our daughter there. I've never been, but based on reviews from some friends who have eaten there, I just don't think it is appropriate. Again, we aren't interested in being "those people!" :)

thank you so much for the suggestions! I did stumble across Sarabeth's after searching some old posts here. I'm a sucker for brunch and everything sounds so good!

Any feedback on Big Daddy's Diner? I came across that in an old post too.

My husband and I will be in town with our 2.5 year old daugther this weekend and would love to do Sunday brunch. I searched and found some old posts, but noticed that many of the restaurants mentioned had menus geared more towards lunch than breakfast. Our daugther is used to restaurants and well behaved, but she is 2.5, so we prefer to stick to kid family establishments rather than being "those people" that drag our 2 year old to a restaurant where she doesn't belong. We save those spots for when our daugher is with a sitter! ;)

I adore Norma's, but even with a reservation there is usually a long wait and it is so tight in there, I'm not sure it would be a good fit with our daughter in tow.

Any neighborhood is fine, we don't mind taking the subway or a cab.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
