Need rec's for reasonable but delicious place for parents' 60th anniversary

cumineat | Dec 12, 201002:18 PM     13

So we want to take our folks out to dinner for their 60th in a couple weeks and I've already spent hours trying to find a place, now turning to fellow Boston 'hounds to help this DC hound.

Here's the challenge (our parameters):

* Parents are real foodies with finely tuned senses of taste. Creative, flavorful menu is good, but doesn't have to be so much artistically presented as well-executed. It can even be straight-forward, like broiled fish, as long as it's really fresh and cooked as ordered.

* We're not all millionaires, so it needs to be reasonably priced - not more than $20 for average entrees; looking for "delicious food at a good value"

* Need a kitchen that's flexible enough to prepare good low-fat, low-salt options

*Reasonably nice ambiance, not too loud for easy conversation

* Assuming we can meet the above main requirements it would be great to find a place not far off 93 because we've scheduled this on a weeknight in order for all of us (16, several from out of state) to make it, and folks need to get in and out (from NH and N Andover) for day jobs efficiently.

Was hoping to find decent $50 or higher coupons on restaurant.com, but there isn't much there. Any info on other coupon sources for good restaurants would be terrific.

Hoping you folks can help us find someplace that will feel special!
