Id like to get a small group (6-8) together at this little Somerville place fairly near Porter Sq., specifically to focus on the Sichuan menu. Classic dishes in a classic neighborhood hole-in-the-wall (and BYOB!).
Wednesday, September 10, 7:30 pm. 289 Beacon St.
Price of admission: a donation to Chowhound of $5 (or morebut theres no shame in a fiver).
Search the board for a few previous reviews. Zoes hasnt gotten much attention here, but its usually packed with diners eating interesting-looking things, many of them speaking Chinese. I have to add that since my somewhat disappointing first visit, Ive had no problems getting my food spicy enough!
