QUIET moderately priced lunch
For a friend coming in from out of town, I was trying to pick a restaurant for a lunch that is, above all, quiet. I was thinking of moderately priced prix-fixe menus - anywhere between Houston and 72nd.
So far, I'm thinking maybe Aldea or Riverpark, but I haven't been to either - would they be quiet lunches?
I would highly recommend Tocqueville. The $29 3-course prix-fixe is a steal for cuisine of such high caliber. Rarely busy at lunch, so it's very quiet (though not noisy when the room is full at dinner either). Excellent service and one of the most beautiful dining rooms in the city.
