had yet another enjoyable meal here recently. So riddle me this Batman: How can a joint that provides
a) tasty, well prepared food with fresh ingredients
b) potent, well chosen wine list with good stems and 1/2 price wine night on tuesdays
c) simple, tasty desserts
d) high quality after-dinner spirits list, traditional Italian digestif list, plus good espresso
continue to suffer the whole "oh it's kind of noisy, I don't like it" complaint? I bet if you threw white table cloths down, jacked the price of everything by $5 a plate, and sent the service staff out back to choke on a fatty people would flock to the establishment.
I'm no fan of a totally noisy experience either, so I just get there around 6. No prob. Plus I don't think it is really all that noisy in there most nights. I understand the basis of the complaint, I just can't understand why it completely overshadows everything else they do.
