The problem is that the time we want, 8 on a Saturday night, is peak chaos. We are meeting an old friend and the three of us would like a place that allows us to hear each other.
As for the choice of food, Indian was the initial preference, but I have not found anything particularly interesting nearby. Kashmir Indian Restaurant on Newbury and Gloucester might make sense. I really like Darbar in Brighton and I have never found it noisy, but it is too far and lacks liquor.
Any information on how noisy Kashmir Indian might be on a Saturday night?
Any other suggestions out there, if we abandon Indian for something quiet in the South End. The food preference would be something fishy and veggie friendly, but not dogmatically so.
My vote is for Peach Farm in Chinatown, but my wife may want something a little more refined.
