95th! birthday dinner - Newton Wellesley Waltham
My spry dad is turning 95 on Fri. We need a quiet place to celebrate, just 3 of us. He likes a good meal, but a pleasant and accommodating locale will be more important than ultra-special cuisine. We've done Lumiere for his 85th and a nice place in W. Roxbury for his 90th when we had a much larger party (forget the name, something Grill). We don't want to drive into Boston or Cambridge. As for price -- $$$ not $$$$ 'Ethnic is fine, though I wouldn't take him to an Thai or Indian place because he's not going to want too much spice.

Stellina in Watertown? And maybe ask for a table in the little alcove they have. It seems like a good in-law or elderly father restaurant. Tasty for everyone, but nothing really out there to challenge anything too much. And that alcove is really elderly-hearing friendly, I think.

Il Capriccio in Waltham - lovely northern Italian - very nice "adult" atmosphere.

how about Sel de la Tere at the Natick Collection just a couple of miles down Route 9 past Wellesley? Another place to think about is Kouzina in Waban.
