"Meet the parents" dinner in Cambridge or suburbs

Hi Boston-area Chowhounds,

I'm looking for something pretty specific and am hoping you guys will have some suggestions. My boyfriend is meeting my parents and brother over dinner next week, and I'm trying to figure out where to make reservations. It's been a while since I've lived in the Boston area so my knowledge of the restaurant scene is sadly limited.

Variables in this equation:
* My parents live in Concord, but we could probably go as far as Cambridge for the right place
* I want someplace low-key so this dinner doesn't seem like too big of a deal
* My mom doesn't eat spicy food and is not a super adventurous eater in general
* My boyfriend doesn't tend to like Italian restaurants; he really likes New American food with local ingredients and yuppie stuff like that :)
* Nothing too pricey (again, keeping it low-key)... looking for entrees in the $15-22 zone

Any thoughts? :)
