I'm in town next weekend visitng my mother who lives out in Katy. She moved out there about two years ago. She used to live closer in, and she usually requests when I come down for a "fun night out" in town.
My little problem is that she can be a bit difficult. No shellfish or restaurants that mostly have seafood. No restaurants that make you eat family style or have limited menus or tasting menus. She likes variety, some innovation (but not too much) and meat (beef, pork, lamb etc). She doesn't really love steakhouses where they just put a big piece of meat on your plate. One of her favorites in the old days was The Beef and Bird, if that helps any.
We don't mind paying for something good, and we don't mind places where you need to dress up. Actually she really likes that. I took her to Tony's a couple of times in the past.
Any thoughts? She wanted to try someplace new and left it up to me to chose.
