Birthday dinner restaurant

I'm a bit at a loss - trying to come up with a restaurant for husband & sis-in-law's birthdays.

Just to give you an idea of where we've been for "celebratory" meals in recent years:
Benatti (now closed)
The Blue room
Il Casale
ICOB (Sun brunch only)
80 Thoreau

We don't want to splurge, so no Clio, O Ya, Menton etc. We like places that serve seasonal menus and preferably from local sources. Ideally entrees < $25. Not a big fan of small plates restaurants, nor trendy/noisy/loud "to be seen" spots. We prefer places in Boston/Cambridge instead of the suburbs (sis-in-law lives in Cambridge and doesn't have a car).

We are looking to dine on a Saturday - but we can do Saturday lunch too if there are places that have good food but too trendy for us at night. Thanks in advance.
