Fogón is a new-school Mexican joint that succeeded Kiki's pseudo-Asian restaurant on the Pike corridor. I hear good things.
We will allow people to order separately, but we will probably get just one bill, so please expect a little complexity as we try to settle the check. Bring lots of cash, and you will get to leave with all of your extremities.
Prices are quite reasonable, though maybe few bucks more than the old-school "family" Mexican joints in town. After a few margaritas, you may need to rethink your book budget for the month, but otherwise, it's quite reasonable.
Because this is a small restaurant and it's busier than its predecessor, please keep your RSVP up to date.
Bus access is trivial with most of the Pike/Pine bound routes. If you are downtown and you see a bus labeled "Capitol Hill", you'll probably get here in minutes. I usually just walk, but bus routes 10, 11, 14, or 43 do the trick if you want to save on effort. Parking can be a slight pain in the derriere on the street, but cheap parking is available at Seattle Central Community College.
Nijikai will probably involve one of the many fine drinking establishments within a four block radius of the place; it might be worth the trek to the Pine Box, or stop at the Capitol Club or Linda's if you want to just stumble out the door.
