Birthday dinner for 4, $50/pp or less?

MPJ | Mar 8, 200807:44 PM

My parents are coming into town and want to take my husband and me out for dinner for my birthday. I'd like to keep the cost around $50 or less per person (before wine, tax, tip, etc.), but here's the caveat: My parents are supremely picky eaters.

My mom won't eat anything fried or in sauce. She also doesn't like steak, and none of us eat pork. She does like seafood - salmon, tuna, shrimp, etc., and chicken. My father is one of those meat and potatoes types - his idea of the perfect meal is steak frites. I know they're fans of Ruth's Chris, but my husband and I don't eat meat (we do eat poultry and seafood).

BAH! Any ideas? So far, all I've come up with is Kinkead's and Dino. But there aren't any prices on the Kinkead's website, so I have no idea what their prices are. I've never been to either restaurant, and that makes me nervous. All of our favorite restaurants would be total busts with my parents (Obelisk, Central, Tabard Inn, etc.).

Help! What do you think of Kinkead's or Dino (it's a Friday night dinner, so unfortunately we'd miss-out on Dino's great dinner deals)? I'm totally open to other suggestions, too. It can be anywhere in the DC Metro area, too, no restrictions there.

Thanks in advance!
