What's the best place to take your picky mom for her birthday?

Hello! This is my first post on Chowhound.

I want to take my mom out to dinner for her 57th birthday but am having trouble thinking of a place because her tastes are so particular.

She likes fresh tasting food, nothing too heavy. Only eats fish and chicken, and prefers a quieter ambiance.

Also, nothing too expensive (she will start nagging about the price even though I am paying for it) and nothing on the westside (we are in Pasadena)!

Her palate is kind of on the boring side and I want to challenge it by taking her somewhere a little more creative, or like classics done really really well and fresh.

If anyone could please help me with some ideas, I would appreciate it very much!
