        Saw that they are now also serving lunch. Menu looks interesting.

      2. There's a Groupon at Groupon.com today for half off at Think tank, the menu looks promising as I tend to love asian flavors and interesting preparations, but I'd love to hear what people have to say about it before I impulse buy! Has anyone been yet? thanks!

            is the Seoul burger ground beef or bibimbap?

            1. re: barleywino

              Ground beef. It doesn't taste particularly korean to me, tasted more teriyaki. It was still good though.

                thanks. i prefer burgers over cheesesteak sandwiches, anyway :)

                1. re: barleywino

                  I forgot to say though that they do give a pile of kimchi on the side. Not sure if this is what they intended but I used that as a topping. We both agreed that the burger itself didn't taste particularly bulgogi-ish (granted they say 'korean bbq', but ...). Liked the black sesame seeds but thought the sirracha sauce was understated.

            We've been both antediluvian and prediluvian and absolutely love everything there. Service is excellent. Fun vibe - good iPod. We had mostly apps - wings, spring rolls, beet salad and banh mi - fresh ahnd delicious. Best of luck to them - so glad they rebounded. They are a really nice option for lunch here in Kendall Square. (This said after a tortured lunch today at Za, which reminded me yet again that I would rather stick needles in my eyes than eat there again. Service is stupid and the food is so blah.)

            1. re: Small Plates

              you mean post-diluvian, right? they should have cocktails named Antediluvian and Postdiluvian...one will have dry vermouth and one will have (not-dry) vermouth

              1. re: barleywino

                Haha - yes, I did mean post. What a good idea - perhaps Vince or Jay will read your idea and use it!

            2. I'd like to hear about the coconut sticky rice. http://thinktankcambridge.com/

              1. I see that they market themselves as local, sustainable, etc. Someone should let them know that the skate fishery is far, far from sustainable. Just a thought.
