Need help in Chestnut Hill
We would like to meet friends for dinner in Chestnut Hill this Sunday. There will be six of us, and we need a place that's not too noisy. We like CinCin, but the noise level is high. Mica would be too pricey for this occasion.
Thanks to all for the good suggestions.
Our friends are very traditional eaters so I made a reservation at Rollers at Flying Fish. The menu should suit them perfectly.
We love Japanese food and Heirloom sounds great - we will save them and the other ideas for when we are going ourselves or with more adventurous eaters.
Roller's at Flying Fish is an old standard. It's not cheap, although it's less expensive than Mica. The food is consistently good, but not cutting edge like many CC establishments. Cash only, and can be a bit noisy, but less so than Cin Cin. Heirloom is also good, but I found it to be very noisy. Maybe on a Sunday evening there may be less customers and thus, quieter than when I went on a Friday night.
Up Germantown ave to From the Boot, definitely would be cheaper. Or Mount Airy's Earth Bread and Brewery is good if you find a quiet corner, which shouldn't be too difficult, though food is definitely on the light side. I haven't been to Cafette recently, but it is a lovely spot to dine al fresco. I have heard good things about Heirloom, (BYO fresh ingredients.. ) but have never been.
