First night out after baby!!

Postby TXmum » Thu Jun 23, 2011 12:23 pm

The sitter is booked, and I'm working on calming my nerves about leaving the baby for the first time. Now on to more important matters...whatever shall we do?
Need a good restaurant rec in the Clapham Common/Northcote/St. John's Hill area. Baby is allergic to dairy, so that means I'm not allowed. So Italian and French are decidedly out!
Any suggestions!

The Rapscallion, Venn Street. French / British fusion. Sure they will do a non dairy thing for you. May be worth a call ahead to ask.

My vote would be for Entree on Battersea Rise - it's excellent. Or if you want a good steak I would recommend La Pampa (also on Battersea Rise). Or how about Trinity in Clapham Old Town?

I'd suggest La Lola Roja...you will have lots of variety and be able to avoid dairy. Plus its quite buzzy to distract you from first time separation nerves :)

If you're a fan of steak, Santa Maria del sur on queenstown rd is the best steak I've ever had. For a fun place with a 1920s speakeasy vibe, try Blind Tiger next to Lost Society on Wandsworth rd. It's got great ambiance. Have a great time - you've earned a fantastic night out!

Lola Roja is amazing , best tapas I've ever had (including in Spain!). not much dairy either, mainly tomato based sauces etc.

Have a good night! xx

I second - or is that third?! - Lola Rojo!

Damn, now I wish that I had a babysitter so that I could go too (but not with you, don't worry :lol: ).

Thanks everyone! Santa Maria is booked up, so Lola Roja it is I think! Now on to what shall I wear? I think the answer to that is whatever I can fit my new giant (breastfeeding) boobs into!

Bit late. So for your second night out (believe me it will come) try Lilys, restaurant above The Frog, Clapham Common Pavement/Oldtown. Went there last Friday for my Birthday!!! Staff, service FOOD Amazing! Would recommend.
Have fun . .
