I'm an impecunious college student whose mother is coming to town for a wedding in Newton. She has offered to take me out to eat once or twice in the area and I am looking for some recommendations. I want great food that exceeds my budget. I'm not looking for high prices for their own sake, of courseI still want a place that's a good value, just one I can't afford on 10 bucks an hour.
One more thing: Restaurants in Newton proper are preferred since my mother will be jet-lagged and not wanting to travel far. I'm not too familiar with the area geographically, so if there's something right nearby, I'm open to it.
No preference for cuisine.
Thanks very much,
