Noise level at Sable?
I am planning a birthday trip to Chicago in December and am intrigued by Sable. My BF, however, is NOT fond of restos with too much noise. I know this is a subjective question, but how noisy is Sable? I don't need a morgue, but want to be able to carry on a conversation.
We have been warned off of Publican by friends due to the noise, if that is any indicator of our tolerance.
Thank you so much!
I agree. Incidentally, I'm not sure whether the main dining room is called "the back room". (?) There's a dining room (with a view of the open kitchen) and a bar room (with a bartender behind a long bar on one side). They are on opposite sides of the host/hostess stand as you enter. It's pretty obvious which is which.
I've only sat in the dining room in my meals at Sable. I thought the room was somewhat loud, but not horribly so. It is NOT one of those places where I've had trouble hearing others at my own small table (e.g. Publican).
