Our book club dinners usually rotate among the members. But for our Feb. meeting, we're reading a short story collection by a Chinese author and want to eat at a Chinese restaurant in the Berkeley/Oakland area. We're open to cuisine from any Chinese region. We're not seeking a Chinese banquet, but will eat family style, and would order for the table ahead of time. Food is more important than decor for this crowd, but we are looking for a place that has a big round table that could seat all of us (11 max). The restaurant would have to be the type that wouldn't mind having us around for 2-3 hours. (Start with nibbles on the table at 7 while everyone gathers, than dinner starting at 7:30, wrapping up ~10 PM). We're meeting on a Monday night. Looking forward to your suggestions!
