Seeking suggestions for a fun, unpretentious meal. It's my birthday and rather than a fancy meal I'd like to try something a bit more Chowish. Having a small child, I don't get out much, so we've tended to go to "good" restaurants when we do have the time -- La Morra (probably our fave restaurant we've tried), Ten Tables... I miss trying out the smaller ethnic places that we used to try all the time when we lived in NYC, pre-baby, though I have managed a few of the local places: Rod Dee, El Pelon, Rani. I'm thinking about the Korean place in Allston but would welcome some suggestions. Live in Brookline, so have tried most of the places in Coolidge Corner. Ideas, anyone? I like nearly every type of cuisine, although I have a slight preference for Middle Eastern (I really like Oleana). Thanks!
