I'm hoping someone out there can help me out with this. I live in the Cambridge/Somerville area and my parents are coming up from the suburbs to visit this weekend. I'm having trouble thinking of a good restaurant to go to for a late lunch or early dinner in the Cambridge/Somerville/Arlington area. Here's the problem. My dad is not big on "ethnic" food, not even Italian. He prefers meats and seafood. My mom is vegetarian, though she'll eat seafood. She has a much more adventurous palate than my dad. But the hardest part is that my neice, who is in her early 20's is coming as well. In fact, we'll be dining to celebrate her birthday, so I want to accommodate her as much as possible. She pretty much likes burgers and maybe pasta and chicken (I don't know. This is the girl who refused to drink Organic Milk last Thanksgiving because she didn't trust it).
I have no idea where to bring this crew for a decent meal with dinner prices ranging $10-$17. Any ideas???
My undying gratitude goes out to anyone who can help.
