restrictive meet-the-parents lunch

Hi everyone,

I've been searching the boards looking for a good place to bring my parents and my fiancee's parents so that they can meet each other for the first time. Normally, this would be pretty easy based on all the topics on this, but I have a bunch of restrictions that have been driving me crazy:

1) It's going to be a lunch of Saturday. I don't know how many places are going to be open at around noon on a Saturday that I'd want to have a special occasion like this at.
2) My fiancee is ridiculously picky when it comes to food and won't eat anything except for Russian, Japanese, or shrimp.
3) It should be south of 86th and north of Houston.

    1. re: jenniebnyc

      Good suggestion. Or, similarly, Blue Water Grill would seem to fit.

    2. Did you see the review in yesterday's Times for the Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill?
