Need Parental Rec for Sunday night

emmyru Aug 28, 2006 02:02 PM

My parents are coming into town this weekend to meet my fiance's family. Just my parents and my fiance will be going out to dinner on Sunday night. I am still new to the area so I am looking for recs. They will be staying near Logan. Price should be around $25-30 a person with most types of food okay. My fiance does not eat seafood but if the place has other options that is fine. Just looking for something nice but not too stuffy since it will be a bit of a stressful weekend. Thanks.

    There are a few decent Italian places in East Boston - Zafferano's comes to mind -

    A recent thread - http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/...

    *EDIT* Ack - sorry - it looks like they are NOT open for Sunday dinner.

    Um...Your next closest bet is somewhere in the North End - Artu is decently priced place - nothing fancy, but decent chow.

      Crap, they're not open Sunday? Well, there goes that idea. I second the North End recommendation. Artu's is okay, but I think Antico Forno is just as afforable, and with better food. Rabia's might also fit the bill.

      Yeah, if you have to stay near Logan, Zafferano's is an excellent choice.

      Let us know if you're willing to come into Boston. This thread will instantly explode in size.

        We are willing to come into Boston just mentioning where my parents will need to go at the end of the night. Thanks.

          Well, in the North End for $25-$30 per person, I recommend Antico Forno, Rabia's, and Dom's.

            I'd go with Antico Forno http://www.anticofornoboston.com/ for their reasonable prices & variety.

        You could also go to Grotto on Bowdoin Street in Beacon Hill. Good food, cozy atmosphere and reasonable prices.

          Antico Forno is an excellent choice. If for some reason that doesn't work, try La Summa, on Fleet St. It's very nice, excellent food, reasonable prices, and they also take reservations.
