Loud music in NY restaurants

Pappardelle | Apr 25, 2008 11:09 PM

Do people play extremely loud music in NY restaurants because they want you to drink, not talk? Is it supposed to make the place seem more trendy? This is targeting my age bracket, but, frankly, I think it is ridiculous. What? All one wants to do on a Saturday night is guzzle down drinks and strike a pose.......

The music at Otto when I went out last spring was insanely loud. I was actually disgusted, because I couldn't even catch up with my friend who I was with. Is it always like that at Otto? I know Lupa wasn't like that....
You won't even hear music at an Italian pizzerias in Italy, because everyone is socializing - whether a person is with her grandma or friends a pizzeria is about interacting with other human beings.

Maybe this is just a pet peeve!
