I'm looking for some ideas of where to take my in-laws for a birthday celebration and I'm stumped. We've eaten at a lot of great places (some not so), and in general, the family's tastes are a bit simpler than mine.
Likes: A nice room with a view and/or fireplace, a good Caesar salad, quiet enough for six people to maintain a conversation, and suitable to bring my incredibly well mannered infant (early dinner, lunch or other off peak time is fine.)
Dislikes: Any Asian cuisines, most seafood (we're not a pork or shellfish eating group), and anything spicy.
Not looking to spend Spago/Valentino dollars as it's just a birthday, not a major milestone.
For what it's worth, here's the list of places the family has gone in recent years:
Casa del Mar
Napa Valley Grille
Pacific Dining Car
The Smoke House
Thanks for your thoughts!
