      Well Azul is a real good restaurant on Suffolk and Stanton. It can get a bit noisy just because it's a small place and usually crowded, but not too bad. Nice date place too.

      Also Isabella's Oven is good and fun. Make sure you go on a nice night and sit in the back outside. Won't be noisy at all as it won't be too crowded.

          Apizz is great but it is not a restaurant that I would ever call "fun" - intimate would be the right word.

          Check out Grape and Grain/Against the Grain - E. 6th b/w B & C.

            Degustation is the first thing that comes to mind in the not noisy category.

              fun is the last word i would use to describe degustation. perhaps austere?
              with regards to the food, i would say the most fun to be had is reading the menu. the actual food that follows doesn't really stand up.

                Agree Degustation is not noisy and not fun. We really enjoy the interesting, creative food and service.

              1. Be more specific, please.
              2. Everything in the EV and LES is fun.
              3. Everything in the EV and LES is too noisy.

                If you haven't already eaten the subject meal, you might want to consider Tasting Room and Five Points. I think that the former is a bit noisy though.

                  Note that The Tasting Room restaurant location on Elizabeth St. in Nolita has closed. I believe jakew8 is refering to the wine bar on 1st Street and 1st Ave.
