Chinatown jury duty group lunch fantasy

Fida | Jun 28, 201612:35 PM

I posted this idea a long time ago, but although it didn't go anywhere at the time, I thought I'd float it again.

I had this great fantasy, apropos of jury duty...

Since there are so many chowhounds in Manhattan...

And since there are periodic postings asking where to go for lunch during jury duty...

I had a fantasy of a Chowhound consensus designating one or two appropriately located restaurants as an evolving a sort of Chowhound lunch-room. Maybe a Chowhound table, maybe a big round table in the back, where Chow-jurors could come by, head for the table, and end up with others of us. Just the typical shared table in a Chinese restaurant, but we'd all be asking for it. We could be as anonymous as we like - provide a name, or not; provide a chow-handle, or not. But there'd be a possibility of interesting company and food tips.

I was thinking of some place like Nha Trang (87 Baxter), which has a good reputation, is near the courts, and very affordable. We could have a "Leff Table."

Of course, it might get to be so enjoyable that it would interfere with being a good juror, as we'd all be thinking ahead to lunch instead of focusing on the trial...
