Polynesian drinks in Chinatown?
I am in charge of planning a birthday dinner that is coming up that will be comprised of mostly non chowish folk. The person whose birthday it is loves kowloon for the drinks.
My question: Is there anyplace doing zombies, scorpian bowls, etc in chinatown that is chow worthy?
you could call up Drink and ask them to make your group a punch bowl of Chatham Artillery Punch, then stagger over to CHinatown
Nothing great at Shangri-La these days, though they do have polynesian drinks. The location actually has a long history going back 50+ years - it was a famous China diner called Sun Tuey in its heyday with Boston politicians, sports celebs and famous people eating there. I would try Hong Kong in Harvard Square or Faneuil Hall - not in Chinatown, but much better than Shangri-La for polynesian drinks and Americanized Chinese food.
I think they place the best fits your description is Empire Garden. (It might be the only place in Chinatown with those types of drinks.)
I don't think the food is Chowish though...
