Another @seriouseats mythbuster. Always thought this one sounded fishy.…
.@cnutsmith I agree. That's the problem with giving dB readings. Quiet places have loud nights and vice versa.
I get angry emails about restaurant noise every week. Today 1 said my calling Claudette "moderately loud" was "appallingly inaccurate."

Bottle of Moët with your roast beef sandwich is $59.95. Keep it in mind.
One roast beef and cheese, one orangeade, side of fries please. Good to be back, Roll-n-Roaster.
