Lunch East of the Beltway

I would like to find a place to take an aging (80+) aunt and mother-in-law (85+) for lunch over Memorial Day weekend (Staurday, most likely). The aunt lives just east of the Beltway (sort of near the stadium) in a retirement village, and doesn't know the area very well. The mother-in-law is sort of phobic of downtown. I don't want to end up in a suburban mall. You see the problem. Also, nothing too exotic (although decent Chinese would be OK). Any help would be really, really, really appreciated.

  1. Which beltway? (I'm guessing DC from the stadium reference)

    1. Grace's Fortune is in a strip mall in Bowie, but the Chinese food is good and the interior is very nice. I don't know if Annapolis is too far -- that gives you more choices. Les Foiles is on Riva Road right off Rt 50 and has its own parking lot and good French food -- you can avoid the extra 15 minutes to downtown Annapolis and parking headaches.

        I second the rec for Les Folies for lunch. They handle senior clientele very well.
