where are all the people?

Randall has taken me to an empty restaurant for dinner. it better be good.

update: it was. it's in the financial-ish district, so there's not a lot of places to live there, but i bet this place is retarded busy at lunch time. i had some chicken curry and he had some lamb curry (i forget which kind). and then we split the bread basket, and my god there was so much bread. garlic naan, onion naan, something else naan, plain naan and then some. oh and i had a mango lassi, that tasted salty on first sip, but then turned out to be quite tasty.

oh and the place was called shalimar, and we used a coupon even.

sidenote: i just read a bad review of the place, but i didn't have experience with cold food or anything like this person said. the wait staff was prompt and kept checking on us, the food was warm and tasty, and perhaps my brain is too heavily swayed by all the delicious naan, but i thought the food was pretty good, not the best i've ever tasted, but definitely above just pallatable. the atmosphere, however, was cold (did mention i was freezing the entire time) but i just figured it was because the place was totally empty and big.

atmosphere: B- (because it was cold and empty)
food: B+ (they received bonus points for the
staff: B (she was really prompt, but not necessarily "nice")
overall: good solid B (now let's see if randall disagrees...)
