Hey, my culinary inspirators -- The Folks are coming to town, and I'm once again faced with planning a Nice Dinner Out. They are good foodie people, love Acme, but Dad is in his mid-60s with the accompanying difficulty hearing -- which means that many places with post-industrial concrete floors that bang noise around are out. (Sigh...so much for Rue Cler...)

The folks have loved:

Acme
The Lantern
Elaine's

among others. I've taken them to Piedmont, but we were there at a dark time of year (February is not great for local produce!) and if there's a decent crowd, it's too loud for Dad. I'm running out of ideas! Any thoughts? Has anyone been to the fancy place in the Courtyard that I forget the name of?

Thanks!

P.S. Don't worry, there is always 'cue on the weekend menu. That will happen. This is the other end of the spectrum.
