A Restaurent with Elderly In-Laws for Mother's Day in Newton

We want to take my elderly in-laws to a restaurant for lunch on Sunday. He is 93 and fragile. Price is no issue. Just not Asian. Fish is fine. A reservation is a must.....I am so grateful for your advise....

    Maybe Fiorella's on North Street near the Watertown/Waltham line? It's popular with both retirees and families, and has a wide selection of Italian dishes, including pizza and pasta.

      it may be too late but you could try lumiere for upscale, fiorella for family-friendly italian, aquitaine for bistro-style french, or even legal's seafood which will serve a good piece of fresh fish. i believe any of these would be comfortable for and attentive to an elderly patron.

        I don't think Lumiere is open for lunch. Use opentable.com to search the date. You can search the Western suburbs. Looks like Legal Seafood, the Met Club and the Capital Grill in Chestnut Hill are all open. Fiorella's is tasty enough, but it's not very 'special occasion'.

          Aquitaine is also in Chestnut Hill. I would recommend Ariadne, but I think they are closed Sundays.
