Dinner with the in laws.

pebepe | Mar 12, 2013 06:45 PM

My partner's parents have agreed to meet downtown for dinner next Thursday, which is... unusual for them. They've suggested Red Lobster, but this seems an eminently bad idea given their prejudices against carbs and deep fried things (or perhaps that's just what I get at Red Lobster?).

So, hoping for recommendations that are not chain restaurants in the downtown core-ish or at least transit friendly, french and semi-formal appreciated, but not deadly expensive. My preferences are usually italian and fairly casual (Paese, Enoteca Sociale), but these would not be good choices for them.

What have you got for me?
