Hello all...my brother is coming soon to visit and loves out of the way, fun, good, a little different place......my 93 year old mother will also be coming with us for a meal, so a quiet place is good, so she can hear!!!! What terrific ideas do you all have?
And thank you.....

      I would agree with marks and espana, but espana is always busy and noisy, but fun. if you dont want that dont go to espana or stokes, marks will be quiet.

        Stokes can get pretty noisy on weekend nights...

        How about Mark's in Dundee? I love that place, and it's a good combination of the familiar and innovative.

        O Casual (right next to El Basha) has a fusion menu and seems calm unless you're there late-night.

        Definitely make reservations if you're going to go to Espana, and if you want a quiet place make sure there are no flamenco dancers.
