Very quiet, BYO in Center City Philly?
For a business meeting in mid-December, I need a very quiet Center City Philadelphia restaurant, not too expensive - about $25 - 30 per person. Quiet is important because we need to have an in-depth conversation among about 5 - 6 people.
Ava sounds right but has a private party booked; Viola and Matyson are too loud and Viola does not seat 6 comfortably; Bistro 7 gets uneven reviews.
I don't know of any byob that is very quiet - unless it is not busy because it is not very good.
You might be okay at Bronzino, which is very good. It's byob with excellent food.
Ask for a table in the corner upstairs. They have a round table that is perfect for 5-6 people.
Not as loud as most places.
If it doesn't have to be byob, there are other possibilities.
you can find expensive, good and quiet
cheap, bad and quiet
cheap, good and quiet. If they are good and cheap they will be crowded.
However, I agree with the Figs recommendation. They are probably your best bet for a relatively quiet dinner.
