Chowdown Update -- Menu Comments?

Seth Zurer | Aug 29, 200110:57 AM     19

The Place: Lao Sze Chuan
2172 S Archer Av
312-326-5040

The Date: Sunday, Sept 2, 2001

The Time: 7:00

The Guests: The current count is 17, as delineated in VI's post below. (We are all right re: money, if as few as 13 show up.)

The Current Menu:

An Assortment of Hot and Cold Appetizers

Seafood and Tofu Soup
Spicy Salt and Pepper Crab
Whole fish with Tofu and Spicy Sauce
Tea-Smoked Duck
Dry Chili Rabbit
Szechuan Eggplant (Veggie)
Peapod sprouts with Frsh Garlic (veggie)
Lamb with Pure Cumin

Fruit Plate
Rice Pudding

The cost: $25 / Person. (i think this includes tip, but I think I'll call to double check: does anyone who's arranged something like this before have any idea if it's standard to include or not include tip?)

Booze: BYO! (There was no mention of a corkage fee)

Notes: Please peruse the menu and let me know if there are any glaring omissions, unbalanced elements, etc. For thems that have access to a menu, let me know if there are any items there that seem like must-eats. I myself was waffling between the Twice fried pork with Cilantro JiaZhou style and the Lamb dish. Vincent (tony's partner) is very willing to make changes during the week this week, so please don't be shy about expressing your preferences. I'm also dubious about the crab, but Vincent seemed insistent that everyone would like it. Do we need dessert or would our dollars be better spent on sampling another entree or two?

I'm looking forward to meeting you all on Sunday...
