SF Chowhound needs advice for Mother's Day gift

rcinsf | May 7, 2009 03:20 PM

Instead of sending flowers this year, I plan to give my mother a gift certificate to a nice restaurant in the Boston area. My parents live in the 'burbs, but often drive with friends throughout the area in search of good food. I haven't lived in the area for years, so I have no idea what the newest and best restaurants are (when I was there Jaspers and Harvest were big). It should have great food, good service, but have a relaxed atmosphere (no strict dress codes), and have parking relatively nearby (my parents are elderly). Oh, and not crazy noisy like a lot of new places are these days. Price not as much of an issue (it's mom after all). Last year I played it safe with a gift certificate to the Four Seasons, which they enjoyed, but this year I figure I ought to be more creative. So what are some new places serving great food in (and around) Boston?
