Dovetail with DH, and elderly parent?

bawc | Jun 7, 2012 02:23 PM

My 88 y.o. father and his 78 y.o. girlfriend want to take DH and I out when we are in town visiting him. She suggested Dovetail, although they both live on the UES. They are making an effort to take us out for a very nice dinner, knowing we love good food as she does. Since this our first dinner out as a foursome, we would like something relaxed, but up to her culinary standards, since they eat out quite a bit.
I should add we are in our early 50's, but with a young child, and we are all "young" for our age! That being said, my father does have trouble hearing in noisy restaurants. Is this a good choice, or should we recommend something else? We are former New Yorkers, and actually lived up the block from Dovetail close to ten years ago. I think we were there once, but it did not leave an impression...
