November Ali Baba in December it just fell that way

Please refrain from using perfumes, heavy fragrances, cologne or after shave. They can aggravate asthma and trigger migraines. Let's save our noses for the wonderful aromas from Linda's kitchen. Please make your guests aware as well.

Ali Baba's awesome owner and chef, Linda, has agreed to host us again. For those who have made it in the past, you know what a fantastic meal  and deal it is. It's also a great meetup with lots of good conversational buzz going on punctuated with plenty  of 'yums'. If you have not yet been, have a look at the reviews from our previous outings there and consider joining us. You are a stranger but once.

The cuisine is Lebanese, the food is totally delicious and they speak fluent vegan. The pita bread will be whole wheat ( pinch me).

The menu for our dinner will be the chef's choice, whatever Linda thinks is good, and we will be served family-style, passing the serving dishes down the table, which I think is way cool. It has been said more than once that dining at Ali Baba with this group is more like a family dinner, with family you like, than a restaurant outing.

The price is $18, which includes tax, tip and tea or whatever other drink they may have. Some of the dishes are prepared with produce from the owner's own organic garden. The food here is absolutely delectable and you won't believe it's only eighteen bucks! Everything will be totally vegan.

Ali Baba is a small place, and we are limited to 20 so reserve as soon as you know you want to come. Also please be kind and change your reservation if your schedule changes and you are unable to attend. If there is a waiting list, that allows others to move up and have a confirmed reservation.

NOTE: Ali Baba does NOT accept credit or debit cards. Cash is best.

Ali Baba is an independent, family owned and run kind of operation, the kind I like to support and chances are you do too.

This place is so home spun that there's no web site. A 'net search will only bring up the address and phone number which is [masked]. Since this is early on a weekend, there will be plenty of time for other activities after we eat. Any thoughts on activities for after are always welcomed.

This wonderful restaurant is the best-kept culinary secret in town. It's as good a Lebanese place as you're going to find and the best I've ever had.

please feel free to suggest some ideas for meetups; let's put some dates on the calendar! let's have some fun while enjoying good food and each others company!
