Also known as an essential clause, a restrictive clause defines the essence of a noun or a noun phrase in a sentence. It is not separated by commas from the rest of the sentence. Generally, restrictive clauses are very common in writing when compared to nonrestrictive clauses. “They decided to meet where the band was performing” contains a restrictive clause.
