I am going to lunch with my boss for my birthday. We go to lunch 2-3X/year for our birthdays and Christmas. In the past we have already been to places such as : Penang, Elephant Walk, Petit Robert, ESK, Rangoli, Sandrines, B&G. We like to share plates vs just ordering our own lunches. Not interested in corporate/fancy lunch spots/steak houses. We avoid chains and places that he has to eat at for business meetings. I've been reading a lot of posts about Neptune and it sounds perfect, and since it's my birthday I get to pick. (unfortunately since it's lunch with the boss, no wine - waah!)...but I digress. Since I have not had the opportunity to go to Neptune yet, I have a few questions: Should we get there a little before 12 to ensure getting seated at lunch? Is there a full menu at lunchtime, or do they scale down? Are they nice about people sharing? Any no-misses (sounds like everything from all the posts I've read!)? Is there a good ordering strategy? Note that we would want to sit at a table, not the bar, and my boss does not do raw seafood (the horror!) but love, love, loves cooked seafood! Thanks for the replies - lunch isn't until the 31st, so I'll report back after that.
