Graduation dinner recommendations?

Nick E. | Jun 3, 2004 04:56 AM

My folks're coming over to Chicago from overseas to see me graduate from college. I'd like to take them out for a nice dinner afterwards, so I'm hoping for a few recommendations.

The parents are reasonably adventurous--I watched my mom eat fried grasshoppers in Thailand a few years ago--but I'd like to go for a more relaxed atmosphere. Additionally, I'd like to avoid Asian places, since I doubt anything here will be able to compare to what they can get back home.

In terms of expense...I'm on a relatively low budget, but I've been saving up for the past few weeks, so I think I'll be all right. As long as I don't end up slashing my wrists when the bill comes in.

Anyway, any ideas? 'ppreciate it.
