Rosemary treated me to dinner last night at Puritan & Co., a recent arrival on Cambridge St. I had chicken; she had beef. The food was pretty good, but the noise was a distraction and made it difficult to hear each other.
The space is one large, long room with a high ceiling. I kept trying to figure out what kind of architectural modifications would cut the noise. The music was too loud, and people trying to be heard by their neighbors made it worse. It's a shame, because they have an interesting menu.
Afterwards, we went to 1369 for coffee.
I am now thoroughly 58.
