reverse snobbery birthday problem on hands

amy Sep 10, 2001 10:44 PM

My boyfriend is a reverse snob par excellence and it is his birthday this coming weekend. I need an off the beaten path sort of scene (the anti-Zagat). If it specializes in eccentricity, all the better. Anything a bit odd but tasty will do the trick.

Any suggestions??

        yes, see thread below - same location but now called something else, and a bit more downscale - kabobs and cous cous type things.
