We went to Double Wide for brunch one Saturday because one of us was craving biscuits with gravy, something that isn’t readily available in New York City. But Double Wide had it and it was delicious. And, as you can see from the meter reading, the soundscape was perfect!
Not so fast.
The absolutely wonderful 70.9 dBC reading was taken in Double Wide’s small back patio, which was blissfully calm during our visit. But to get to the back patio you have to walk through the oh-so-loud bar first. That is, small back patio aside, the rest of the space is too damn loud.
So during the warmer weather months, you can enjoy your biscuits and gravy and conversation with your companions if you can score a seat outside. And that is fine, because Double Wide is not a place you should eat at every day. Why? Three words: loaded tater tots. And yes, they were appallingly delicious.
