Quiet restaurant sought in White Plains area

ptshapiro Nov 2, 2011 06:00 PM

I am taking out my mom and her two siblings, ages 86 to 91. All three are hard of hearing. I would like to find a nice place not too adventurous that doesn't play music and doesn't get too loud. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Dinner is planned for November 5.

    How about Graziella's? Decent Italian. The old venue was certainly quiet. They have moved to Church Street now but hopefullly the same vibe.

      I had the same thought, but I haven't been to the new location.

      When I want to dine somewhere quiet, it's usually the lounge @ the Ritz Carlton.
      They also might like City Limits.

        I had dinner at the new location of Graziellas on Saturday. Even during the snowstorm the restaurant had a good number of people. While the food and service was very good, there is music in the background and it was fairly noisy. It is in the old Blue space which was noisy. They changed some of the decor but it is still a large and potentially noisy space when filled.

          Haven't been in a while, but check out both La Bocca and Tre Angelina for solid food in a nice, quiet setting.

            Tre Angelina is a great idea. They can get busy on a Sat night, so you should make a reservation. It's a good place because there is always a lot of nearby on street parking so your mom and her siblings won't have to walk too far.

            Imperial Wok, especially upstairs, would suit your requirements. Food is really good, too!

            Not that downstairs is noisy, but the tables are closer together there, so if you're going to be louder talking with people with hearing issues, you might feel a bit conspicuous.
