9 Private-Dining Options Perfect for a Baby Shower

View as Map

A baby bump is the new black this year—everyone from Kate Middleton to Kim Kardashian to Jimmy Fallon's surrogate sported them. So Eater Louisville is sending some love the expectant momma's way with suggestions for how to wine, dine and wait the long nine.

Planning a baby shower can be almost as tough as sleeping through the night when you're nine months pregnant and just ate more than your fair share of Wiltshire's doughssants. No surprise though, more than a handful of Louisville restaurants will help your bestie pull off the perfect pregnant party (which, despite her assurances to the contrary, she resents you for having to do). These 10 places have pregcellent (sorry!) private-dining options that'll allow you to sit back and relax as guests gawk at your gorgeous belly, tell you that you look like you're going to have twins (if not triplets) and speculate about who the father is.

Know of a great restaurant to hold a baby shower that wasn't listed here? Leave it in the comments.
