I want a restaurant that can take me back in time

cajungwailo | Dec 29, 2016 09:03 AM

I miss restaurants where you can have a leisurely dinner, not feel like its a production feed, not feel like they can't wait to flip the table, has attentive but not intrusive service, and a pleasant ambiance. If I'm paying $50 + a plate, I won't want another table sitting right on top of me, and I especially don't want that table to be full of boisterous drunks in shorts and flip flops. Traditional cuisines. Steak? Italian? Place has been open forever, wait staff is older than dirt? Do these places still exist? Thanks.
