The noise level at Brushstroke is a bit like a wave — set your watch for high tide around 8 p.m. If you arrive before 7 p.m., you’ll be met with a slightly eerie quiet, despite the soothing instrumental music pumping from the New York restaurant’s sound system. In fact, it may feel as though the entire eatery can hear your conversation. But as the space fills up, surrounding voices and the usual clatter of plates and clinking cutlery will crescendo into a dull roar, creating a more inviting atmosphere for your private conversations. Thankfully, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant never gets loud enough to warrant abandoning ship.
