Please sign up for the Yunnan banquet here by indicating the number of guests that will be joining the banquet. For ease of counting, and to minimize the amount of logistics work/ email exchange, please edit the third post (the post after the menu) to add your name (forum or real), and the number of “adults or big kids”/ “small kids”.
We’ll use the RSVP count to ask the chef to cook the right amount of food, and you’ll also use this count as a basis to split the bill among your tablemates.
ETA: A reply to this thread is not an RSVP. Only your response on the third post is.
ETA: The menu is in the second post. None of the dishes are on their normal menu.
I am checking with the chef to understand whether we need to source the mushrooms ourselves for the banquet. If so, the mushroom (at cost) will be added to the price of the $299/ table (seats about 10 people). Expect to pay about $40-45/pp after tax, tips, drinks, etc. Please note that the exact cost depends on the exact number of people at your table.
Please bring cash to settle the bill with your tablemates. I want to finalize our headcount (i.e. number of tables) with the chef at least 48 hours before the meal, so if you have a change of RSVP, please be courteous and do so by EOD Wednesday 7/11. Edit your RSVP in post 2, and then reply to ‘doubly-confirm’ that you really mean to change your RSVP.
ETA: Please note that the chef prepares this one-off banquet as a special request, and may need to source ingredients that are not normally used on the menu. Please, as a courtesy to the chef and your fellow diners, don’t back out after the RSVP deadline unless its absolutely necessary.
The restaurant is super casual. For those who don’t know, the restaurant has a separate seating area from the food court’s. Please feel free to bring friends, family, kids, everyone.
