My spry dad is turning 95 on Fri. We need a quiet place to celebrate, just 3 of us. He likes a good meal, but a pleasant and accommodating locale will be more important than ultra-special cuisine. We've done Lumiere for his 85th and a nice place in W. Roxbury for his 90th when we had a much larger party (forget the name, something Grill). We don't want to drive into Boston or Cambridge. As for price -- $$$ not $$$$ 'Ethnic is fine, though I wouldn't take him to an Thai or Indian place because he's not going to want too much spice.
