Catching up with long lost friends Saturday night. Looking for:
- non-stuffy, hip atmosphere
- terrific food without breaking the bank
- nice bar (for starters)
- good wine list
- can hear one another talk
- takes reservations
Are these bistros too noisy to qualify? If so, any other options come to mind? I want to try Hook but we have a non-seafood eater in the party. Thought about Dino, but concerned about the noise level there too on a Saturday. The same person who doesn't eat seafood isn't adventurous with ethnic food so Indian, Thai, Ethiopian, etc, is out. TIA.
