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 $20-$30 per person. (A few places may be AYCE buffets, or better for individual ordering, but most meals will be shared.)
