(Yonge & Finch) The Parents are coming, Where should we eat?

TdotNerd | Sep 9, 201109:10 PM

Next month my parents will be coming into town for a cousin's wedding (on Thanksgiving weekend) and will be staying for around a week. I would like to show them some of the local restaurants, however I don't eat out very often, and when I do, it's usually a bowl of pho or something equally pedestrian; Not the kind of restaurant to bring your parents to.

To give you some idea of what they like, the last time they were in town I took them to Baton Rouge, which they enjoyed, but I'd like to avoid resorting to chains this time around if at all possible. Also, my parents are getting old, my Mom's in her mid 60s and has mobility issues (she uses two canes to walk around) and my Dad's in his early 70s. They'll be using a car so a place with easy parking would be great.

I'd like to keep it moderately priced, no more than say $40 per person for food. Also my folks are about as white as they come, and while they'll eat more than just meat and potatoes, I wouldn't want to bring them somewhere where they've got no idea what's on the menu.

That being said, my Mom has expressed interest in going to a sit down dim sum place for a meal. If you know a good place for that, please let me know.

I live near Yonge & Finch, but we can travel a fair distance by car for a decent meal, however I don't want to go all the way downtown for every meal (try to keep recommendations North of Eglinton) or hike out to Scarberia.

Thank you kindly for you help
