Still looking for places that will make my mother happy (to dream the impossible dream...). All the ladies in her building like Chef Geoff's so she wants to go there and we decided for Mother's Day, we'll take her anyplace she wants to go. But this weekend, we are taking her and another elderly lady out and that adds a layer of complexity in terms of where the other elderly lady will consent to go (she'd prefer to stay near home) and parking (my mother can't walk very far). So I'd thought about Ardeo which has valet but is not really their cup of tea. Then I thought about Lia's, which has an Italianish menu, mostly fairly heavy food, a certain amount of thoughtfulness and creativity.
Anyone been to either Lia's or the Chef Geoff's in AU Park? I couldn't find anything except a couple of brief mentions in 2006.
