    That's an informative, cogent article by Kate Wagner. Liked it a lot.

    One thing, a chicken/egg conundrum--do restaurant acoustics beget loud talking or is it just a societal thing, where the behavior of people out for dinner have evolved/devolved to the point where they simply don't give a crap about other diners near them?

    Been to Wildfire/Lincolnshire a couple times recently, and even with high ceilings, all faux-burnished wood tones, still was much louder & raucous than I would've liked. STFU and let me enjoy my steak! (Said the curmudgeon!) 8)

    Seems to me to be more reaction. What are you going to do if you can't hear your tablemates besides speak louder (outside of texting).

    Crain's Chicago Business has a story Looking to dine in peace? There's an app for that.

    Link to list on app's web site so you can see the list without getting tangled in Crain's pay wall.

    The list is very short and almost entirely in the greater downtown area with a few as far north as Lincoln Park and Lakeview.

    They really need more participants. The app is only for iPhone and not all models of it. Android phones present calibration problems due to their wide variety and may never work well enough to use. LTHers with iPhones could be very valuable contributors.
