Quiet restaurant but also group friendly?
I realize I may be asking for the impossible here...
I'm having a high school reunion of 8-10 girls in a couple of weeks, so I'm looking for a group friendly, but inexpensive to moderately priced restaurant. The big catch? One of the girls suffers from some hearing loss, so noisy restaurants are a no go. Any place with live music is also nixed. However, we don't want to be in a place so quiet that a group of girlfriends can't chat and drink without offending people. Any suggestions?
Food-wise, we are open. Mexican is the biggest crowd pleaser but I feel like it's an especially difficult cuisine to find a quiet restaurant in the city.
