place to please vegetarian/cheeseburger hound/cost-conscious mom

I'm taking my son and daughter to A Chorus Line matinee on Saturday and am looking for a good place to take them to dinner after the show. Problem is, daugher is a vegetarian (but is not into salads -- she needs pasta or other options), son loves burgers, and I will eat most anything but don't want to spend a fortune. Any recommendations of places that we will all love? I'm willing to travel by T outside of the theater district, and my son goes to Lesley College (near Harvard Square) so Cambridge is also an option (again, near the T). Thanks in advance for your help!

Places take College Son/Girlfriend for dinner

I'm sorry if this has been posted before, but my boyfriend and I will be taking my college-student son and his girlfriend out for dinner this Saturday, and I'm not sure where to go. My son doesn't like seafood (shame on him!) but my boyfriend eats mostly seafood, so we need a place that offers a variety of foods -- but nothing too "out there." We want something casual and fun, that will take reservations, and that is accessible by T. My son goes to school in Cambridge -- my beau and I will have spent the day in Boston --so we can meet in either place. Any thoughts? I had a very delightful birthday dinner at Eastern Standard a few weeks ago (got the idea from this board -- thanks very much!) and so am looking for something like that. We may even end up back at Eastern Standard, but since I live 25 miles out of Boston and rarely get into town I thought it might be fun to try some place different.

Thanks in advance for your help!
