Quiet Recommendations

Hi all-

In about a month or so, my Grandparents will be visiting me in the Twin Cities, and I'd like to take them out some place really special to eat. I need to be very picky about where I choose however, as they are both very hard of hearing, and often get discouraged at places that are loud, as restaurants tend to be. They are somewhat adventurous, though I'm not sure how well they would do with some of the ethnic varieties we have here in the cities. We will most likely be going out around 7 on a Thursday night, so I'm looking for some place that will take reservations as well.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

  1. Any specific area or budget?

    1. re: BigE

      Any area is fine, as long as it is not too far outside of the cities. For budget, any place that has entrees for less than $30 or so should be fine!

    2. Sea Change is a very good place for a special dinner and both times I have been there it has been busy but not loud at all. I would even ask to be seated in the far corner along the windows away from the bar and it should be even quieter.

      1. I think Forepaugh's in St. Paul would fit very well. I have had some really nice food there, and some ok food, but it is definitely a favorite of my grandparents and their friends. W.A. Frost would be another suggestion, with similar results, but I haven't eaten there in a few chefs so I cant say anything about the current menu.
