My wife and I used to go to Sign of the Dove on our anniversary. We loved the food, and also the flowers, courtesy and quiet atmosphere. We wept bitterly when it was driven out for a highrise.
Little Dove came and went.
The chef is now at Nice Matin, 201 W. 79th St., which has gotten fine reviews, but complaints about the deafening noise level.
What are the recommendations for a very un-Chowish special-occasion place, with the best food, the best atmosphere and NO NOISE?
