foo monkey: IT'S BECAUSE RESTAURANTS BLAST MUSIC LIKE THEY'RE A GOD-DAMNED RAVE. TURN OFF THE farkING MUSIC. LET US EAT AND TALK.I ate lunch last week at a higher-end Italian place. Party of eight. Went in for a late lunch (2PM). We were the only table seated. They had the music so loud we couldn't hear each other across the table. Music is not ambiance. It's noise.
PleaseHamletDon'tHurtEm: This isn't really new in some ways. It's a psychological parlor trick: Noisy, dark restaurants are supposed to make people want to leave sooner, thus freeing up table space.
quatchi: Wait restaurants are actually getting louder? I thought I was just getting older and grumpier.
