As the subject says...Les Halles got a thumbs up from chowhounds for food (red meat without Luger prices, escargot) but too noisy for conversation. Again, not romance, just want to be able to talk. Atkins dieter with me. Ideas? I know Le Zie serves meatballs (great ones?) without pasta...more bistro-ish ideas? Dining partner gets plenty of Italian and Portuguese at home, so other cuisines optimal.
