New Capital Seafood is Now Five Star Seafood

Went today and the dim sum seems about the same, which is to say quite good. Surprised that I am the one reporting on this, ahem Chandavkl?

  1. The change was made a little while back. I noticed it when I walked to 99 Ranch with my family one night. My father said he didn't even notice since the Chinese name for the restaurant remained the same.

    1. I reported that change in early August to my Twitter followers, but since absolutely nothing changed inside (including the New Capital interior signage), though they did reprint their menus, I didn't follow up on this board.

        I reported that change in early August to my Twitter followers ...

        If it was anybody but you this would sound totally obnoxious and ostentatious.

          Hmmm. You're right. And I do like the sound of it. But really, what I meant to say is that I generally don't duplicate content.

            Went for late lunch today and noticed that the front entrance is being dollied up - workers tickling the roof above the door with cement touches with several of the staff over seeing. Lunch good as ever but the noodle dish that Mme Zoe likes didn't appear but came as thin noodles instead of the wide ones she likes. Big conversation with manager about this - noodles not my thing since the Dukan Diet doesn't include that. Love this place.

              What about me? My wording (as per a post in another thread): "I mentioned on Twitter, but forgot to mention it here...d'oh!

              I also noticed the Five Star name change, but noted little else appeared different. FWIW, I follow Chandavkl on Twitter, figuratively and sometimes literally.

                "What about me?" Yes, yes...don't worry. You're obnoxious too... ;-D> (and just in case anyone misses it...I'm kidding here)

                  There's really nothing worse than a needy obnoxious person, right?

                    My obnox-osity (obnoxiousness crossed with grandiosity) comes naturally...(nature rears her ugly head once more)

                    1. re: ipsedixit

                      Occasionally I remember to post here instead of just tweeting. I suppose that means I'm receiving some sort of emotional gratification at Twitter that I don't get here :-) (just kidding, love this place).

                      1. re: JThur01

                        All humor aside...the times when I've scooped an opening, closing or restaurant info over the group here, particularly Chandavkl and TonyC., I feel like it's an accomplishment.

                        1. re: JThur01

                          Yeah, don't you guys have day jobs ?

                          Being on the cusp of the scoop remains a full-time job with advanced skills and expertise.

                      2. re: ipsedixit

                        I think we are all quite obnoxious to a certain extent.

                        Myself included. Yes, please... Needy and obnoxious that would be me.

                          I suppose it takes on to know one, right?
