I have read the posts about Baohaus but still have a couple of questions:

1. Can you bring in your own booze? (At lunch time, yes I know I have a problem but I will be on vacation).

2. If you can't bring in your own booze, is there a bar anyone can recommend in the area?

3. On a friday afternoon, am I likely to be able to get a seat for 4 (I have read it is a single communal table).

Don't want to start a huge debate but.... last year I was in NYC. Had a pork bun at the Fatty Crab and thought it was the best I had ever had. Had one two days later at Momfuko and thought it was great (have been there many times) but not as good as Fatty Crab. I read all the Pork Bun posts and it seems like Baohaus is the clear favorite after Momofuko. There was another place mentioned but it had MSG which would cause my head to explode immediately killing my friends, a watress and likely a chef or at least a cook.

Thanks to all the hounds in advance!
