Today in the P.I. Leslie Kelly poses this question in her review round-up: “So, where can diners turn for a piece of quiet?” She explains she’s “searched for dining rooms that offer calm oases, venues more seductive than sedate,” singling out Canlis, Cascadia, Chez Shea, the Georgian and Portage. I think we can have fun expanding on that list, and seeing as so many of you are clamoring for less clamorous restaurants, it’s a timely subject.
I’ll start, and send extra lovage your way in advance if you can help me come up with some more-affordable restaurants to add to my list. Are you ready, kids? I can heeaarrr you at: Beato, Bis on Main, Cafe Juanita, Dulces Latin Bistro, Enotria, Eva, Gaspare, il Bistro, Le Gourmand, Madoka, Marjorie, Maximilien, May Restaurant & Lounge, Nell’s, Stumbling Goat Bistro , Szmania’s and Trellis.
