The Burger at Station 8 in the Bank food hall looks amazing. I'm planning on trying Station 8 and some dessert places, but they have a lot of different food places. The Italian pizza place (Platypus Pizza) looks good too. Downstairs has a tap room also, so we can go down there once everyone is finished. If you only want to come for the tap room or the food that is fine too.
Platypus Pizza Company
Inside a historic, 102-year-old bank building, with its gilded ceilings, circular vault doors, and elegant light fixtures still intact.
And it’s massive. The 30,000-square-foot building at 629 J Street will ultimately house 10 food vendors and a bar on the ground floor, two bars on the mezzanine, and 68 self-service taps, 18 TVs, and two private lounges in the basement.
Meet for lunch at either Mylapore (South Indian food) http://www.mylapore.us/ or Mandares (Korean Fusion) http://www.manderes.com/.
Please state your restaurant preference in the comments.
After lunch we'll head to the Sake Factory for a guided tour (as long as we have 8 confirmed attendees). The building overlooks a koi pond. After the tour, we can enjoy tastings of their plum wine and locally produced sakes. The tasting room is open from 11-3. There is also a gift shop.
Let me know if you would prefer to carpool. I can designate a meeting spot.
Reservations for the tour must be made by May 17. If you commit to attend, please honor your commitment. I will update the restaurant selection and make reservations for the restaurant and tour for our group at that time.
