So what is the number one complaint? You guessed it–noise. What will the response be from restauranteurs? If the past is any indication, nothing. Until people refuse to eat at restaurants that serve a side of tinnitus with their meal, nothing will happen. We at Silencity believe in voting with your wallet. If enough people ask that music be lowered or complain to the manager about noise, eventually something will be done. So be sure to tell the owner or manager why you won’t be returning to their restaurant or why you’ll pass on a table. And while we wait for restauranteurs to react, go to our sister site, Quiet City Maps, and let them help you find a relatively quiet restaurant, bar, or coffee shop in noisy New York City.
