Where to Take Your Parents Out to Eat, Mapped

If you're tired of playing it safe when choosing the right restaurant, here's your solution

Smokehouse Tavern
| Dina Avila

At Eater, we've often heard the following complaint verbatim: My parents only like to eat at places like Olive Garden. So for all of you wondering where to take your parents when they're visiting from out of town, here's the answer: A selection of restaurants that strike a balance between adventurous and reliable. You won't find yakitori, fried pig brains, or stripper-inspired cocktails, but you won't find endless free breadsticks that taste like styrofoam, either.
