I've had it. I'm a freelancer in a "creative" industry, and a lot of my meetings need to/tend to happen in casual spaces in the EV/LES area. i just need to be able to hear--i'm hearing impaired. but the food should be good and there should be at least some vegetarian option & beer & coffee. i know it's not cool to be in a quiet restaurant, but i don't want to go to a crappy dinerish place just so i can hear. ventilation fans, pop coolers, loud music--forget it.
suggestions please! mid range fine. but affordable and causal is what i'd love, yet willing to go up the ladder.
