Tekka -- Good News!

Andrew Raskin Jul 27, 2001 10:40 PM

The long wait is over. I called Tekka tonight, and the owner answered! He was on vacation in Japan for the last month, and tonight he's getting the place ready. He will be re-opening Tekka this Monday.

So, when are we goin?

    I am so excited and will go any day, any time... I had to bow out your last visit to Tekka and while reading the post-dinner remarks made a mess on my bib salivating and drooling. PLEASE include me in the group if at all possible (I promise to behave). Thanks.

      so happy to hear the good news! i, like caryl, did have the mouthwatering reaction to your earlier post and have been driving by myself looking for the sign on the door to be gone.

      there seems to be alot happening for me this coming month, vacation, etc., so i can only join you if it's a monday or tues. eve, but would love to if you end up going one of those days.

        Well, since you promise to behave, ok.

        For the Tekka visit I'm thinking Thursday, Aug 2, say 7pm? From the size of that place, we should probably limit the group to about 5, and then go another time if there's more interest. So far we have me, Caryl, and I think Tida said she wanted to go. Who else?

        Again, based on Tida's previous postings, this is a small sushi bar that also serves izakaya (Japanese pub food) dishes.

            Well, we're not getting a lot of response for Thursday, so how about Tuesday 7/31 instead? That way can you make it Rochelle? Caryl? Anyone else?

                OK. Since you're the first one to respond for Tuesday, let's make it a plan. Anyone else want to join Rochelle and me at Tekka on Tuesday night?

                  Hey, if you guys still have room, I'd be happy to join your dinner party. I've been wanting to go eat sushi with some adventurous people (my regular dinner companions tend to stick to nigiri and rolls and rarely do we order something we don't recognize on the menu), so I'd look forward to a real chowdown at what sounds like a great Japanese restaurant.
                  Both Tuesday & Thursday work for me.

                      OK, Dixie. You make five. I'll email you with the details.

            Now that's an attractive mental image. With Andy denying that he's smart and rich, plus complaining about walking up a steep hill, he's not conjuring up as the cute, virile guy he is either. Clearly this board is only focused on serious eating and not personal ads. (g)

            Caryl, what's the fun if you "behave"?

            I'll be out of town on Thursday. Will catch up in round 2 with Rochelle perhaps.
