A friend and I are planning a regular late-Friday-lunch type deal where friends can come and go as they please a bite, a meal, or or a glass of wine before heading home (or back to office, knowing our friends).
To avoid the whole who-ordered-what problem, we need a place where people can pay as they order but which has yummy food and comfy upscale decor. Mangia comes to mind but it's too casual. If only Keith McNally would invent such a place. But, alas, he hasn't.
PS. Go eat the Braised Short Ribs Rendang at Fatty Crab ASAP. It's my new favorite thing.
