Seeking a good restaurant, quiet enough to converse in.

Looking for a restaurant with an inventive menu and decent wine list, within walking distance of the Westin and Hampton Inn, where we can meet friends whom we see only annually and have a good dinner.

That is a tall order. It really does seem all the new restaurants are being designed to maximize noise. I can't think of one that fits the bill. BUT my favorite (and Julia Child's) is within walking distance, especially of the Hampton: Pot Au Feu. It's classic French cooking in the quiet, elegant salon upstairs. The Coquille St Jaques are excellent, as is the creme brulee. Downstairs is a more casual, inventive and noisier bistro. Perhaps a look at the menus might help you. It's one of our favorite special occasion places.
