As the title says, I'm spending next weekend in Boston with my mom, and am looking for restaurant recommendations. One night she wants to go to a North End Italian, so I booked a table for Mamma Maria. But I don't know where to go on the other night. My mother is a very, very picky eater - not the least bit adventurous, and prone to just zeroing in on whatever on the menu is closest to a plain roasted chicken. On the other hand, I like my food to be a little more creative. Can anyone recommend a restaurant that'll satisfy both of us? Additional considerations: because we're already set for Mamma Maria's, I'm not looking for anyplace Italian; and neither of us eat seafood. Also, we're staying in the Back Bay, but wouldn't mind taking a taxi to another part of the city if the food's worth it. Any help appreciated!
