If you are talking about after baby is here, like a sip and see or something, yes go for it. Though a restaurant is probably not a good idea.
If you are talking about a celebration of your pregnancy, that seems kind of awkward and might be misinterpreted as you throwing a shower for yourself. I wouldn't.

So the "something" should be a meet and greet at your home after the baby is born. Very simple. A few snack foods. A couple beverages. Easy to set up and clean up. You don't want people to stay too long (trust me on this one) and you don't want to have a major clean up afterward (trust me on this one also).
But a dinner to celebrate the baby before he/she arrives? No. That is just weird and unnecessary. Your baby will be celebrated once it arrives...not before. (And I'm sorry you are not getting a shower...that can be a bummer)
