My husband's college friend is coming into town next weekend, and when they get together they tend to get a little boisterous. So, we need a restaurant where we do not have to whisper or be fairly quiet. The other requirement is really great food and a decent wine list. It does not necessarily have to have a New Orleans flair. We originally had thought of August, since the last time my husband and I were there, the people around us were fairly loud, and it was not a problem. However, they are booked for Friday. I would love to take them to Stella, but I think it is a little to quiet for this evening. Any help would be really appreciated!!
