I need to entertain a group of ~10 people next week. I'm looking for an upscale American "comfy" food menu, something like Sola, West Town Tavern, Erwin, etc.
The group is all guys, and after a few wines the noise level raises. Lots of laughter and table conversation. Sola would be a perfect environment with its volume, but we've been there.
I don't want a completely silent & sport jacket place, but I still want a very nice menu and wine list.
