The boss is paying for dinner--where should I go (on the Peninsula)?

Hi hounds, this is a good problem to have. I just completed a very difficult, complicated and stressful project with great results (patting myself on the back) and the boss said to go out to dinner and he'll pay for it (and I know he didn't mean Denny's). It's a holiday weekend, I don't know if I'll be able to find someone to go with me, so I will probably end up going out alone. If I can't get someone, then I can't get a reservation anywhere. I don't want fine dining as I'm exhausted and want something where I can relax and decompress a bit. I can't eat a lot of spicy food so no Thai, Cuban, Hunan, etc. It could be great BBQ, seafood, Italian, American...

I could go to one of my usual favorite places but would love to try someplace new. I'm located mid-Peninsula and figure I'd go anywhere in between Burlingame and Palo Alto. I'm too exhausted from this project to drive into SF and wouldn't go there by myself anyway.

I could easily go to Old Port Lobster Shack and get a whole lobster but then again, I could go somewhere else. I won't mention any other places I've been to and loved, please just suggest what you think would work.

So, if I go alone, where should I go? If I get a friend, where should I go?
