My mom will be in town for a week over Thanksgiving, and I'd love to take her to some restaurants offering really good food, but ones that aren't too fancy--it's not her style, and she won't enjoy it. At the same time I'd like to try some new places for me, ones that will satisfy my more foodie tendencies. I'd love to find:
1) a great little place (maybe in the North End) that will have scrumptious, simple Italian in terms of a really good red sauce, Eggplant Parmesan, maybe a Marsala dish. As I said, simple, but reliable and yummy.
2) Solid Indian, which she's said she wants to try. I'm thinking Kebab Factory, as it is close to us in Cambridge. Other thoughts?
3) Seafood. She loves fried clams, oysters, that sort of thing, as well as lobster. Last visit one of her favorite things were the fried clams at Dairy Joy. Good fish and chips will make her happy as well.
Other genres are welcome as well--she's here a full week. :-)
