Is a Noisy Restaurant becoming Trendy?

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

We read an interesting blog post on the Baltimore Sun the other day. It talked about what seems to be a strange but growing trend – the creation of upscale restaurants full of – well… noise.

It seems as though restaurant owners feel that noise is trendy. They think the vibe gives a restaurant energy and will, essentially, draw a larger crowd.

I’m not sure I’d want to eat in a really noisy establishment and, to be honest, they have to include a lot of soundproofing to make sure their new noisy atmosphere doesn’t disturb their neighbors. Is it just a bit more trouble than it’s worth?
