35th anniversary meal for parents

rachelblue | Nov 8, 2013 09:13 AM

My parents are celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary next month and I'm thinking of taking them out for a special meal. They're a pretty staid couple with, hm, not-so-adventurous palates, so I'm mostly looking for a place with excellent atmosphere/ambiance (must be a QUIET restaurant) and service. Outside of NYC is okay. Looking to spend maybe $300-350 on a meal for four? (It's likely only two of us would be having alcohol, so probably no bottles of wine.) They like traditional "red-sauce Italian" restaurants, seafood and traditional American food. (Basically, every time my mom considers a well-known upscale restaurant like the River Cafe, she looks at the menu and isn't sure anything sounds appealing -- so no Per Se or Eleven Madison Park for us.) Will probably present them with options so I'm looking to start a list.

Alternatively, we'd take them out to brunch with our 15-month-old -- but it's sort of hard to reconcile "nice brunch place" with "acceptable with 15-month-old," so suggestions there would be great as well!
