meeting for lunch in downtown Oakland?

It does sound like there are a number of us working in downtown Oakland, trying out new places. I'd definitely be up for meeting others for lunch some day, or even on a semi-regular basis.

Should we plan out a destination, see how many want to go, and meet at the restaurant? Maybe a neutral sort of "even if I've been there, it'd be great to go back" place. Say, Vi's, Huynh, or Toutatis?

Or would it be easier to pick a day and time and a location, meet there, see who arrives, toss in suggestions, and just walk to the restaurant?

The latter is easier to plan, but could be fraught with "we just missed you!" problems...
