Need a restaurant for a very picky friend

vvvindaloo | Feb 2, 2008 12:56 PM

I am trying to decide on a restaurant to go to with a friend from out of town. This friend does not eat any seafood whatsoever, nor does she care for Mexican, Indian, Asian (other than suburban American -Chinese fare) Spanish, French... well, you get the picture. She would probably really appreciate a nice German restaurant, but that would not be so much fun for another friend of mine who will be joining us. So we're left with steak and Italian. I can think of about 20 great Italian places I'd like to go to, but I think they would be too trendy/expensive/wine-oriented. Friend #1 specifically requested a restaurant that is "reasonably priced", so that leaves the big steakhouses out.
Before I call Crispo (which would not be a bad thing, as I do love it) can anyone suggest a not-too-stodgy Italian place that also offers good meat dishes? Or a steakhouse that is affordable? I imagine she would not want to spend more than about $50, total. Oh, and she is strictly a beer drinker, so an emphasis on wine or spirits would not go over too well.
Thanks in advance.
