My parents will be in town this weekend.
My mother is a fussy eater.
She's vegitarian, but she also doesn't like any oil or butter or greasiness, and she thinks just a little bit of flavor is too spicy.
When we go out, she usually asks for a custom dish of steamed veggies over dry pasta or rice, or pizza without cheese, or salad without dressing and cheese...
So, this is New York, and there's got to be something that caters to exactly her taste, right? My father and I are willing to suffer for a meal or two.
Any suggestions? Most places I know of have spicy thai flavors...
Manhattan or brooklyn.
