Need a new place to take my mom for her birthday on Sunday. It'll be my mom and dad (both in their early 70s), me, my wife and my grown sons.
We love Brent's but literally my parents suggest Brent's (either take out or dine in) 98% of the time. My folks like a Japanese place named Musashi and a Chinese place called Pagoda. Both are ok, not great. We've been to the place on SF Mission across from Smart and Final with a New Orleansish theme -- I can't remember the name. Maybe CF Kitchen or something like that.
My mom doesn't have a strong stomach, so nothing spicy. No Indian or Thai, for example. We've been to the Greek place on Reseda a couple of times (Alex's? Something like that). My dad won't let me pay, so I need it to be reasonably prices. Up to Brent's prices, I guess is the way I'd describe it.
My folks live north of Rinaldi Street, off Balboa, and won't want to go too far -- so GH or Northride is okay, but Ventura Boulevard is too far.
Any thoughts, anything of interest up that way that people would recommend?
