Picky In-Laws + Thanksgiving 2009 in Brooklyn = Yikes!! Any Ideas?!

striver888 | Nov 15, 2009 03:29 PM

So my husband & I are meeting my in-laws in Brooklyn for a Thanksgiving dinner.

We are stymied for a place that will satisfy all of us, and I thought fellow Chowhounders might have a solution, other than heavy drinking or eating cold cereal by ourselves at home (god forbid!).

Here are our parameters:

1) A restaurant in Park Slope, Downtown Brooklyn, Carroll Gardens or something not too far into Fort Greene or Prospect Heights.

2) Something not too fancy but not too dive-y either. My in-laws are uncomfortable with anything too upscale, nouveau, or foreign. My husband & I are way more open, and we want to have a nice meal nonetheless. It doesn't have to be a traditional turkey dinner, either, but traditional is fine, too.

3) Under $60 per person would be great, else my father-in-law will blow a gasket. Not a good thing on Thanksgiving.

Any brilliant ideas other than a diner? Or Dunkin Donuts? Yes, I've fallen that low...
