Quiet Restaurant with Great Food
Some great ideas. Even I have to admit the current rage for lively noise is often too much for me. Restaurants should consider having "a quiet" area with no music and a little quieter for those of us who prefer that. Will let you know what he picks. I would lean toward Locke-obers....love Lydia's food.
I'm thinking of really small, excellent restaurants...like Grotto or Ten Tables Cambridge/JP. And I'm sure you know that the earlier your dinner starts the quieter it will be. For some reason, my husband and I have gotten a lot of 5:30pm reservations and we're the only ones in the entire restaurant.
Oh, and don't forget Con Sol in Cambridge. Pretty great food, but most of the time you'll be one out of the two or three groups in there. Kinda spooky, but whatever. :)
