This ocurred to me after the thread on America. It occurs to me that there are a few places that are so noisy that I refuse to go any longer. America is, of course, lame, so the noise is only one of many reasons not to go. the others on my list are China Grill, City Crab and JUdson Grill. What other spots have jackhammers and jet engine running? And why do the owners like them that noisy???
