Mom is coming up for a night and wants to take me and Z. out to dinner--yay! She is staying either at Le Meridien or the Sofitel, and so someplace nearby would be best. She is actually being responsible on the company's dime, so it can't be too outrageous in terms of cost (sigh--still haven't been to Grace or Sona, another time perhaps). I suggested the $35/pp prix fixe at Lucques, which she said sounded fine, but we've been to Lucques before and since Z. and I don't get to eat out a lot, I'd love to try someplace new. Is there someplace in that neighborhood a chowhoundly monkey can take her mother and significant other without breaking the bank? Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.
