Restaurant Noise Wire

eater0713_babbo1.jpgNew York magazine critic Adam Platt talks with the Leonard Lopate Show about rising noise levels in restaurants. He says the trend was started by chefs like Mario Batali, who served food chefs liked to eat and played music they enjoyed, and he doesn't anticipate it abating anytime soon. Other contributing factors: less fuss, smaller spaces being cheaper to maintain; and restaurateurs wanting to create a party atmosphere. [WNYC]
