I'm having trouble finding a place to go with my parents and some friends in two weeks. i'm in charge of finding a place, that above all, is good for conversation. while we all like good food, we are not looking to go to any haute place. the problem is that we will be 6-8 people so i don't even know what will be free. managed to get a reservation at le zinc but was told that it is very loud. is this true? if so, any other suggestions for a place in chelsea, village, soho, or tribeca?
