      she will eat about everything. prefers a finer dining experience. but does not have to be stuffy

    2. As one with a mother of that age (therefore I am persumably old enough to be OP's mother!), let me point out that "Conversation-friendly" may be a huge asset in the experience a hit. Check reviewers' comments on that, and when you make your reservation, be sure to ask for a quiet table! Can't make more specific recommendations until you pinpoint what type of cuisine (and what part of town).

      1. Try the dining room at the Drake Hotel
