Forgive me for asking, but I need help on picky eaters!!!

So we are trying to get together for a celebration with Mom the 29th and 30th of this month. My sister has agreed we'll do the Rockettes, but reminded me that "her girls" don't like anything fancy schmancy. They have very basic tastes.

How is it possible that my neices have no pallette, and that my sister encourages this?

So I am desperate to find a celabratory place for dinner that will not intimidate. With Mom it would be simple, she adored Grammercy Tavern and any other haunt we have taken her. But with the frugal 4 joining us with a pallete for chicken parm, pasta and chicken fingers, I'm at a loss. Definately need to broaden their horizons in a safe place that won't make them uncomfortable, but will still impress mama.

Thank you everyone for any ideas. I'm even willing to cab to Grammercy Tavern for a cocktail to celebrate, but that's as far as that would go. Still need to eat!
