About 95% of the time, I can easily forget that I have a voice disability. You’d never know I have a paralyzed vocal cord unless I told you. Except if we’re in one of Toronto’s many loud, loud restaurants, with the hard surfaces, booming music, high ceilings, and everyone screaming to be heard over everyone else. My voice lasts about 90 minutes in that environment, then my friends sitting right next to me can’t hear me. (Dr. Anderson tells me that is because my brain recruits my pitch muscles to help my one good vocal cord speak above the din, and eventually those muscles just poop out from the continued effort). So let’s start our own list of quiet restaurants in Toronto. Here’s two:
1. Annona Restaurant, Park Hyatt Hotel, Bloor and Avenue Road, http://parktoronto.hyatt.com/hyatt/hotels-parktoronto/entertainment/dining_detail.jsp?itemDesc=fboutlet&itemId=1003220
2. Bar Mercurio, Bloor and St. George St. http://www.barmercurio.com/
Post a comment or send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know of others. They’re rare, I know, and I am always on the lookout for quiet places!
