Entertaining a picky visitor: suggestions we both can enjoy

tardigrade | Feb 20, 201507:57 PM     11

What I love about living in the Bay Area is the wide range of foods available, from All-American to Vietnamese (and now someone will tell me I missed that great Yugoslavian place :-)), and I love vegetables (I'll eat meat, but it's not essential). However, I'm having a relative visiting from the Midwest who's a rather picky eater. She won't eat wheat, doesn't like anything even mildly spicy, says she does paleo but won't touch organ meats, won't touch sushi, hates mayonnaise, and pretty much subsists on overcooked (IMHO) meat. Any suggestions for places I can take her to -preferably mid-Peninsula- that will show off the region but that won't freak her out?
