Does anyone know anything about "New Style Cafe Buffet" in Peabody? It supposedly opened in the Buffet King space on the 19th of December. Yet, google shows bupkis. Moreover, a search on the board here shows posts from 2002 claiming Buffet King was gone. Surely that can't be - I ate there about 4 months ago! It must have closed around Oct or Nov 03 at the earliest.
Or has it been on-again, off-again as Buffet King? In any case, what about New Style? Supposed to be Thai Chinese and Japanese, and they just bought a liquor license, per the local paper.
Any other interesting buffets around? That Thai place in Marblehead stopped serving theirs, I believe. Lasted like 4 or 5 weeks, tops. Too bad; I thought it was quite nice (albeit a tad steep).
Lastly, Phantom Gourmet - a show/site I don't trust much - lists "315 Main" as an Italian buffet in Woburn. Italian buffet? Is this true? I can google up very little on the place (also as "Three Fifteen") - anyone know offhand?
By the way, how much is the lunch (lunch only?) buffet at Novel in the BPL? Various ads state $5.95, but a few reviews state $15.95. The former seems too low for that part of town; the latter way too high for a lunch!
Speaking of which, I noticed a lobster-inclusive buffet somewhere in RI which goes for "only $65". Only $65! Lobster or no lobster, who would do a buffet at that price? The kids price is something like 40 bucks even!!
Anyone know the place?
