    David went into a restaurant

    I am not sure if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    David went into the restaurant and found himself amidst the lunch flurry: waiters carrying the trays; the clank of crockery and glasses, the clatter of cutlery, and the buzz of voices of office workers probably exchanging the latest gossip.

    Re: David went into a restaurant

    I would make one change. Have the waiters carrying trays with plates of food. (Not "the trays".)

    Tarheel,

    Thank you for your help.
    I have noticed that I add almost automatically "the" to the nouns in plural. I have to get rid of that bad habit.
