What we're about

Meet people looking for interesting and diverse experiences while seeking out fascinating food -- over dinner, at lunch, even on walks through New York neighborhoods.

Everyone with interest and enthusiasm is welcome: Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and good conversation is as enjoyable a part of our get-togethers as good food.

We've explored diverse cuisines including Malaysian, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Indonesian, Burmese, Nepali, Afghan, Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, French, Romanian, Czechoslovakian, Uzbek, Georgian, and Azerbaijani, and we're hungry for more -- there's so much to choose from in New York!

Hooray! We're going back to Tamarind, which is is a beautiful and elegant restaurant serving delicious food from all regions of India.

• This is one case in which we dine family style from the Restaurant Week menu and everyone will share the dishes that I order. The cost will be $39 per person plus tax and tip. There will NOT be separate checks and each person must pay the organizer in cash, small bills preferred.

• Drinks will go on a separate check and must be paid for individually.

• We will order at 1:15 pm: remember to allow sufficient travel time!
The nearest trains are the 1/2/3 to Franklin, and the A/C/E to Canal.

• RSVP etiquette: We often have a waitlist of people clamoring to join us. Please RSVP responsibly. If you must change your RSVP, please do so at least 24 hours before the scheduled time. If you have an emergency the day of, please change your RSVP and also send the organizer an email through the site. That way, waitlisters have a chance at getting in. If you don’t show up and haven’t given notice, you’re considered a no-show. No-shows are disrespectful to other diners and (with the exception of a verifiable emergency) will be removed from the meetup group.
