My parents have lived in the Metroplex for 45 years, and about the only "fancy" place they ever liked was Steak & Ale. With Steak & Ale's not-so-recent demise, they were left without what was for them about the only special occasion restaurant in town (Dunston's being a distant second).
Anyway, they have a big anniversary coming up this summer, and I'd like to take them out to eat. But I'm at a loss as to where to go. In terms of food, their tastes tend to run more in the direction of Outback than that of Stephen Pyles, and they have never been folks who set the table with more than one kind of fork per person. In case it's of any help, their favorite place to eat in the Phoenix area has been Black Angus steakhouse.
So, I guess I'm I'm looking for recommendations for "nice" places that (a) aren't too loud, (b) have something for steak-and-potatoes tastes, and (c) aren't too fussy. This meal is definitely more about my parents than it is about me, so interesting menu options are not as important to me as they would be if I were dining solo or my food friends. That said, I really would like to find a place where the food, even if it's staid, is well prepared.
