Bday dinner with my parents - lowww key

atoz | Jan 7, 2008 10:57 AM

hello,

I'm a big foodie and don't mind splurging once in a while on a 5 star meal.
My parents, on the other end, know what good food is about but don't like to pay more than $20 on a main.

My dad pays too much attention to the "bang for the buck" concept, i.e. he's not into paying $13 for one scallopt like at Club Chasse & PĂȘche ;-) which is too bad I think, he doesn't know what he's missing.

It's my birthday dinner and they want to take me out, I'd like to have a very nice meal but the prices have to ba fair, my mom's into anyhting but my dad is more of a carnivorous.
They do not like fancy settings or anything intimidating or superficial. Just honest food, and a relaxed/cozy ambiance.

Any suggestions?.... Right now I cannot think of anything.

thank you so much.
