I'm looking for a relatively quiet, dimly lit (perhaps candles on the table as opposed to fluorescent fixtures above) type bar/restaurant/bistro - type of place that you can sit for a while and not have to order a whole big meal.
I have a friend who is mildly agoraphobic, and will only be semi-comfortable in a place that is somewhat low-key in terms of lighting and noise level. Also, (and I don't know why) she prefers tables and chairs to booths.
We would like to find a place like this in or near one of the following areas: Conshohocken, Plymouth Meeting, Lafayette Hill, Andorra, Manayunk, Roxborough, East Falls, Chestnut Hill, Erdenheim, City Line Avenue, Bala Cynwyd, Ardmore, Bryn Mawr, Wynnewood, general Main Line area.
It doesn't matter if it is crowded, though she prefers less people. It's more a question of noise rather than number of other people. No loud music. A place where we can hear each other talk.
Thanks to anyone who can suggest a place.
