Restaurants with 4 star food, 3 star atmosphere?

Ross | May 27, 2005 01:06 PM

The NYT review of Babbo a year ago, or whenever it was, said explicitly that the food was 4 stars good but the atmosphere - the crowdedness, the speed they turned over tables, the noise, the music played - made it a 3 star experience.

I'm wondering what other restaurants people would consider as being in this category: places where the food is almost or just as good as the famous 4 star heavy hitters, but the experience itself is a more casual affair.
