Two hundred fifty people talking at once is going to be loud wherever you are. I happen to like the fun atmosphere of a place that is busy and exciting. If I want a quiet night out, then I go to a small, quiet place that takes reservations, or just go to the louder places earlier in the evening when it is much slower.
The reaction to last week’s column, “Dial down noise in restaurants,” was surprising and heartening. It was surprising in its intensity. I really struck an auditory nerve. It was heartening because every response agreed with what I had to say. Every one. That’s a first.
My wife and I and another couple go out for dinner at a Fargo or Moorhead restaurant at least once a week. The choices are many – from high-end places to mid-range family restaurants to bargain cafes, diners and buffets. We generally like the mid-range options – either a chain outfit or a locally owned place. Food is good, priced fairly and service is usually outstanding.
