Are you tired of shouting at your dining companions, or perhaps you'd just like to enjoy some great food in a peaceful environment? You've come to the right place.
Loud restaurants abound, thanks in part to the popularity of "industrial chic" design — which tends to utilize slick surfaces that don't absorb sound well. These restaurants may be easy on the eyes but not so much on the ears. And while some amount of "buzz" adds to a restaurant's ambiance, a high-decibel dinner can distract from the food and the overall experience, leaving diners with headaches and ringing ears.
So what should you do if you want delicious food and audible conversation? For starters, look for acoustic panels. Astute restaurant designers incorporate them so that sound gets absorbed instead of bouncing around the room. Or just skip straight to this map.
