We have NY friends in town and are going to dinner tonight. My husband is demanding (and I tend to agree with him) a place where he can hear what our friends are saying to us without shouting....so that lets out SPQR and NOPA.
We are thinking of Helmand mainly due to lack of noise but we haven't been there since it moved from Broadway. Is it still nice enough to take friends to dinner? Is the food still delicious?
Any info appreciated. Also appreciate any other suggestions.
Has anybody been to Antica Trattoria lately? I haven't eaten there in a couple of years, but remember it as less ear-splittingly noisy than some.
