  1. I was never stopping anyone from going. I just asked a question. Obviously there is not a definitive answer. I was at non Asian restaurant recently that similarly had been slammed every weekend, and the past month they've been 1/2 to 3/4ths empty on the weekends. Why is that? IF the economy is not affecting people why are there so many reservations to be had in some of NYC's top restaurants? or easy walkins for that matter? I wish China 46 all the best and hope it turns around for them.
  2. SARS fears taking toll on business, owners of Chinese restaurant say "Fear of the SARS virus is becoming a more dangerous epidemic than the disease itself" Philly Chinatown hit by SARS scare Unfounded SARS rumor hurts Asian-themed shopping center I was referring specifically to China 46. I've read accounts about other cities. And the Chinese restaurants in Englewood that I've passed or gone into seem to be doing ok. Could the downturn have something to do with the economy? Restaurant business in general is down.... why are you trying to put a damper on such a good cause nackersl? I'm no

  4. That pulled pork was great that night!
  5. Mark, it might make a difference if we get some kind of press coverage. "Food Group tries to save fave restaurant from the spectre of SARS" or something like that. But there is no proof that anyone is staying away because of SARS
  6. nackersl, i was referring to the amount of selections. i'd be full by the second table! I'm not so sure. I saw you put it away at China 46
  7. Tommy, it was very possible to taste everything, and go back for 2nd's or thirds. There were 350 guests but the tables were never crowded so getting hot food was never a problem. It was set up for people to graze. SO you'd his a few tables, sit down, eat, drink, then go back for more. Very pleasant, very fun and very delicious.
  8. Besides not helping out a great cause, this is what you all missed and let me say it was an impressive assortment: HD's by Back Street Baker and Caterer: (Christine COgan Kimmerle) Italian style lump crab cake with red onion remoulade Grilled pesto shrimp skewers with sun-dried tomato Warm caramelized onion and goat cheese tarlets Tuna aux poivre with wasabi aioli Dinner Alpine Country Club (Nick Gatti): DOminican SLow Roasted Pigs with Mojo, Yucca Mashed and Fried Plantain chips Andiamo(Linda Dickstein):Mini Crab Cakes with Sweet Corn Relish and a drizzle of Mustard sauce America (Kenneth Co
  9. you're much more attractive. of this i'm sure. but you gotta admit, your emotional plea was a little over-the-top. Much more attractive! I don't see that she made a plea but rather tried to make a rational to how better to spend ones money and make a difference. And if it does come down to a plea, then sometimes that is what it takes to get people going. Neither MSP nor I are trying to politicize this. Just trying to get people out to have some fun, some great food (this site is about food right? ) and at the same time help out some less fortunate folks.
  10. $75 per person would seem more reasonable. Maybe it's limited seating. It's Bergen County NJ. High median income.....
  11. $150 per person though... ouch But the $$ does go to a great cause. Look at it this way, how much money do you spend to eat out in any given week? Maybe close to that? IF so, using that same money at the Pig Out helps a great cause and allows you to sample grub from a lot more restaurants than if you went and had dinner at 1 or 2.
  12. The Great Grill and Pig Out at the Alpine Country Club (Home Turf of Chef Nicholas Gatti) is on May 15th and is a fund raiser for Table to Table. Please do your part and join hundreds of other New Jersey folk help raise money for a super cause. Table to Table is the sister organization to City Harvest in NYC. Currently Table to Table, through the generous donations it has received, is able to supply needy folks with meals at the incredible cost of only 11 cents a meal. Help them continue to to do this work. Please do your part. Hope to see you there! Click here for details and the restaurant l
  13. Hey Folks, please don't forget this wonderful event. It's for a great cause that supports the NJ Table To Table Organization. And our very own Fink's Funky is involved. Not to mention the guy with the Pompadour who will remain nameless unless you read here very carefully here.......
  14. From your post it sounds as if I have definitely not frequented the Manor as often you have. I'm glad that you frequent the Manor and have very positive experiences. Unfortunately, the experience I had over several visits was consistenly not at the level that warranted 4 stars like it garnered in its last review and as you noted I reported it. Not at all. But if more restaurants subscribed to the "Danny Meyer Hospitality Philosophy" then there would be no need to say how you would have a more personal experience while I or anyone else less known to the staff would be treated extremely well an
