Indonesian consulate: struck out for lunch

Well, headed up to the Indonesian consulate
(68th Street) for lunch, but alas, we were
disappointed. The main door was locked - hit
the buzzer and said we were there for lunch,
and the (exasperated) response was a cry of
"no, no, no - no more lunch). It was 12:30,
so I assume that they meant the place was no
longer serving (or at least not to outsiders),
as opposed to meaning that they were done for
the day.

A real bummer - we were looking forward to
trying it. There was a door opened downstairs,
and it said that this was the entrance to get
visas. My wife suggested that perhaps this
represents a "back door" to get in for the

Hmmm . . . perhaps one could go down there,
claim to be thinking about getting a visa, but
ask to try some Indonesian food before committing?

In any event, thank goodness for the metrocard,
which whisked us to Joey Thay on 31st Street.
