Nice Italian/Steakhouse/American without excessive noise level

terim | Nov 12, 2009 04:15 PM

We are spending Christmas in NYC (from LA) and meeting up with old friends who live there. We want to pick a nice restaurant that isn't so loud that we can't hear ourselves talk. We are also all middle-aged and not into an overly trendy scene. I want to stick to Italian or a steakhouse or American type food to suit all tastes. No prix fixe. In years past we've had great evenings at Gramercy Tavern and Union Sq Cafe - both of which I'd still consider returning to and which I don't recall as being overly loud. I am looking at Scarpetta, Lupa, BLT Prime or Steak as well. Any comments regarding the noise level at these places? Any other suggestions for a really nice evening out with good food and service? Do you have any recs on these places I've named? Many thanks for helping us have a special eve out with people we enjoy seeing.
