What we're about

We're enthusiastic open-minded foodies of all ages, who love sampling and sharing cuisines from all over the world.

Family-style dining often nets a cheaper and more intriguing experience: a group can try lots of unfamiliar or unusual dishes that you might never have risked a whole meal on. If you delight in exploring ethnic restaurants and will travel most anywhere a NYC Metrocard can take you, you're a potential friend. Many events will be for omnivores, some vegetarian or vegan or veg-friendly, and typically they'll run around $24-$35 per person. (A few places may be AYCE buffets, or better for individual ordering, but most meals will be shared from a menu chosen by the host.)

Please be considerate with your RSVPs and change to No ASAP if not coming, so as not to inconvenience other diners or the restaurant. We do keep track of no-shows, and three will get you removed from the group. Also, please bring cash and some small bills; makes everyone's lives easier.

Transit: Franklin Ave shuttle to Park Place, walk two blocks.
