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).
Thanks everyone! I made a rez via Open Table and requested a quieter table. I am really looking forward to my trip.
