Sunday dinner for 5 without breaking the bank.

andytee | Apr 2, 2007 09:57 AM

My fiancee's Mom is coming for a visit this weekend before the two of them take off to visit Ireland. My Mom and Stepdad will be meeting her (fiancee's mom, not the fiancee) for the first time, and would like to take us all out to eat.

I'm charged with finding the place, and looking for somewhere that can take us this Sunday (Easter) and won't break the bank. I'm looking for something affordable (entrees under $20, $10-15 would be ideal) and comfortable, but also unique and interesting. My fiancee's Mom is coming to Boston for the first time from Wyoming, and we would like to take her to something she hasn't tried before, but not freak her out. My parents are adventerous foodies who love funky ethnic dives, as long as the food is not too spicy. Everyone loves seafood, but we are open to eating other sutff.

I was think Muqueca, fits the price range and is delicious and unique. But they dont take reservations and close at 7:00. I still havent called to ask about whether they are open on Easter. Oleana is another thought. However, I'd love some suggestions that I might not have thought of yet. We are in East Somerville, so I have mostly thought about Cambridge / S'ville places, but we could also travel into Boston.
