Quiet!

Restaurant
Kai, 822 Mad [68th/69th] 212.988.7277. This exquisite Japanese newcomer is small, minimalist, and peaceful.

Flotation Tank
A little sensory deprivation may be just the thing to restore your equilibrium. At La Casa Day Spa, 41 E. 20th [Park Ave. S./Bway] 212.673.2272, an hour in the tank is $50.

Place
For our money, Wave Hill, 675 W. 252nd St., Bronx, 718.549.3200, is the most beautiful spot in the five boroughs. Mark Twain, Teddy Roosevelt, and Toscanini all lived here. The gardens, woods, lawns, and views of the Hudson are incredibly restorative.

Sound Machine
The Sharper Image has a sound machine (it's also a CD player/alarm clock/radio) for $229.95. There are 20 soothing sounds, including 'fireside', 'Yosemite Falls', and 'ebb tide'. www.sharperimage.com
