Important birthday dinner in my family for somebody that doesn't like to eat too much but does enjoy being out with the family. Preferably something nice-ish, but definitely not formal, or even classy - more homey. I'm thinking a place like Sweet Butter, but the dinner version; Cafe Marmalade, but not quite as 'country,' or Nata's, but with a little more energy and not quite as dark and Euro. Any suggestions?
There is no preference whatsoever for type of cuisine - they're open to literal anything, just something 'light' and not formal, but still cute/nice.
