Dinner suggestions: Cafe Zupa, Compadre's, Freshii, Freska, Great Dane, Johny's Italian, Nani, Nile, Nonno's, Oliva, Pizza di Roma.
Mint Mark - very interesting menu, does not take reservations :(, I havent been and cant tell from the pics how big a group it could take - have you been? What are your impressions Lisa? Looks liek a decent lunch/brunch place:) i will add to the list.
By the way - if anyone is interested in hosting or co-hosting (coming up with a venue, making sure they will allow separate checks, making the reservation, arriving early, doing the write-up) - please approach one of the organizers at an event (we like to see people in action).
I've never been. That's why I suggested it. Sorry, I can't be of more help Larry.
