Hi Atlanta chows,
This is kind of a strange request - I'm not familiar with Atlanta and y'all hopefully know exactly where I should go.
My boyfriend's father will be turning 80 and my boyfriend and his sister- both on a budget- will treat dad to a celebration dinner. The dad has very bland food tastes- nothing ethnic or spicy, too modern, or gourmet. Grilled fish and french fries and rice is his ideal meal. Probably nobody in the party other than me will be a foodie, so environment and cost are actually most important factors. I know a pleasant, moderately elegant atmosphere would suit his tastes and make him feel special. They live in Dacula but the dinner could be in Atlanta proper. His grandchildren and possibly step-grandchildren would be among the group (2-4 kids ages 4-7), so kid friendly as well.
Because of the budget concerns, I thought possibly BYOB or BYOC (cake) would help with the cost.-- not sure if that is possible though.
Thanks for any suggestions!!!!
