Executive Chef: Andrew Isabella
🙂 = Great location right in the heart of Downtown Decatur, with (paid) public parking within walking distance. Authentically warm, friendly, knowledgeable staff and versatile atmosphere that’s suitable for family dinners, date nights, business lunches, and everything in between. High chairs and a cute Kids Menu + crayons. Tasty Italian-inspired fare made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, including wood fired pizzas, handmade pastas, innovative small plates, hearty entrees, and delectable desserts. Extensive wine and cocktail menu for mommies and daddies.
🙁 = The restaurant isn’t huge. If your little ones are hyper and looking to run around, this probably isn’t the best place to take them. Bring them here when they’re calm and ready to enjoy some yummy food.
Notes: Mommy follows some specific rules when she takes us to nicer restaurants, like 246, that Yelp says are not good for kids. Scroll down to the end of this post to learn Mommy’s tips for going upscale with toddlers. ~ If you’re lucky, you will get to sit in Neil’s section. Neil is one of the best servers we’ve ever met. In fact, we visited 246 primarily because of the great service he gave Mommy and Daddy one evening when they snuck out for a dinner date. Neil, if you ever get to read this post – thank you for taking our messy eating in stride, not getting disgusted when one of us tried to show you our bare foot over the table, and teaching us all about the food we ate. You rock!
