Lunch, sometime soon?

Or maybe dinner? What are people's constraints?

I'm thinking sometime the week of the 11th would be good, and give us some time to organize things.

As to where, toxicfur was waxing rhapsodic about a Japanese restaurant in or near Chinatown, where you cook your own stuff in a pan of boiling broth. Sounded interesting enough to try, at least.

I have a standing meeting at 11 on Wednesdays, so 12:30 would be better than noon for me on a Wednesday. Any other day would be fine for noon, 12:30, or even later. Wednesday the 14th I also have a meeting at 3, but that's certainly doable, even if I go out for lunch.

My new favorite restaurant: by toxicfur (2.00 / 0) #1 Sun Jan 04, 2009 at 01:03:35 PM EST
here, called Shabu-Zen, and it is in Chinatown. It really is pretty fantastic, at least at lunch. I'm sure dinner is also wonderful. As to constraints, do I have to think about my work schedule today? Hm. I know we have our regular meeting on Mondays, so it would need to be closer to 12:30, and Thursdays I need to leave by 2:30, but that should be doable. Dinner pretty much any evening would be fine, I think.

love Shabu-Zen by Kellnerin (4.00 / 1) #6 Mon Jan 05, 2009 at 02:25:46 PM EST
Though we've gone to the one in Allston. We were going to go with my family for the Solstice, but got snowed in. We rescheduled for the next day but those plans were scuttled when my mom and I got stuck for OVER TWO HOURS in a parking lot. (Not in the sense of "traffic like a parking lot," unless you mean "traffic like a parking lot IN a parking lot." Grrr ... argh.)

I checked off my possible lunch days in the poll. Dinner is less good for me in general. D might be up for Shabu-Zen but that would probably mean Friday dinner/weekend something -- but Sat. the 17th is out for us. (Also, we decided to try it again for Chinese New Year at the end of January, so it is not dire that we go there.)

Oh, right.. Dinner. by ana (2.00 / 0) #2 Sun Jan 04, 2009 at 01:08:27 PM EST
Can't do Wednesdays in the evening. I think other evenings are fine.

As always... by aethucyn (2.00 / 0) #3 Sun Jan 04, 2009 at 02:52:32 PM EST
lunch is not an option for me.
I'll also admit to not being a huge fan of the cook your own food style of restaurant dining. Especially since the best Japanese food isn't cooked at all.

Well no, but wish I could go to those things.

If it was late Friday dinner or lunch/dinner this weekend or next Rizzo and I would love to come down.  We *might* try to drag Sapphire with us!

Steamboat dinner! by Tonatiuh (2.00 / 0) #8 Wed Jan 07, 2009 at 08:10:34 AM EST
When i lived in Malaysia this was an old favourite, so much that I actually bought a pot to prepare the food in the authentic way.

Here in London you find all he original ingredients for an authentic steamboat dinner. Healthy and delicious, thoroughly recommended.

So.. by ana (2.00 / 0) #9 Sat Jan 10, 2009 at 02:25:44 PM EST
Looks like either, say, Wednesday for lunch, or what would people say about Friday night for dinner? Do they take reservations?

Friday dinner would be perfect, as long as arriving after 7 doesn't make us "late".  Count us for 3 not including Paco, who may just burrow into our fluffy comforter while we're gone.
