Indonesian Embassy (E. 38th St.) Lunchroom is closed

Alan Divack | Jan 3, 2002 07:05 PM

Apparently, the cafeteria at the Indonesian embassy to the UN on East 38th Street is now closed to the public. I went there for lunch today, and as we approached the receptionist, she shook her head and waved her arms vigorously and said "Closed. No more." The lunchroom was always very sensitive to political crises, and shut to the public for a few days when Suharto fell. This seems much more serious, and I take it as an indication that conditions are as dire as they seem to be.

I dissent from the prevailing opinion on these boards in finding the 38th St. cafeteria at least good, and often better that that. I will miss it very much. I have never been able to make it to the one uptown. Does anyone know what the situation there is??
