Searching for Grandmother-safe Restaurant

Jeff Shore | Jun 9, 2000 12:50 PM

Curious to hear people's thoughts on this one:

Where would you take your grandmother to dinner? I love her dearly, but she is not a chowhound; her favorite qualities in a restaurant are warm bread, soft booths, and low prices. And, as she is from the suburbs of Philly, even the "low" prices out here are bound to shock her. (It doesn't even matter if I pay; the prices will still stun her.)

Basically, her favorite food is chicken -- but it better not be fried.

With these wonderfully inclusive criteria in mind, what would people suggest?


To celebrate my fiancee's achievements, we had Panna Cotta at Eurochow followed by Eggplant Parmasean at Allejo's on Lincoln. EuroChow is wonderfully gaudy and tacky, and it seems like their almost-too-subtle Panna Cotta is the best way to appreciate the place. And as for Allejo's, it seems like the absolute perfect family restaurant; the Eggplant was great (though not quite as fried as we like!).
