Need restaurant suggestions for birthday dinner (West Chester area)

truman | Apr 22, 2014 08:57 AM

Hi - My parents are coming to town next weekend, and mom wants to organize a surprise birthday dinner for dad's 70th. I'm struggling to figure out where we should go! Here's what I am working with...

7-8 adults + 1 preschooler, so dinner will be on the earlier side, and on a Thursday night
We live just east of WC Boro, so anything from Malvern to Exton is fair game, and we're okay expanding that radius a bit east - though we will be going there at rush hour...
Parking must be relatively easy - dad and uncle are not so into walking long distances these days.
BYO vs bar is not important

Mom suggested "Italian, barbecue, or hamburgers" and nixed Mythos. I have suggested Cafe Fiorello in West Chester (never been, but a coworker loves it), Anthony's in Malvern, and TJ's in Paoli (we took them there on a previous visit). If there were a Bravo/Brio or a Redstone American Grill closer to us, either of those would be perfect... anything like that nearby?

Thanks in advance!
