    How's it? Are they delivering locally today or only pickup?
    No delivery but the line was only 10 minutes when I was there.

    Personally I didn't love it but I'm no food critic.

    Anyone been to B&B recently? Do they still have long waits for tables?

    I also noticed they updated their menu.

    Nice.
    Was actually thinking about flying into CH today and possibly doing a HT DO there, but Izzy didn't respond to my email or FB message.  Guess I know what it feels like when people email/PM me now ;)
    Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

    great to see that in the past few years, CH has several new sophisticated offerings. There's now a top-rated dairy (Basil), meat, pizza, and sushi. One great Chinese place for CH and you're all set.

    Lol that is a picture from their facebook page, don't have a clear picture from mine, so took from there.

    great to see that in the past few years, CH has several new sophisticated offerings. There's now a top-rated dairy (Basil), meat, pizza, and sushi. One great Chinese place for CH and you're all set.

    Rumor has it that another great "Meat" place is opening up soon too.

    I walked by ealier tonight and it was pretty packed. I assumed it was by invitation only, but was wondering if that's the case why there seemed to be a line, I would think they wouldn't invite more people than they can seat...

    +3 for me, but I'm also intrigued by this:

    Rumor has it that another great "Meat" place is opening up soon too.
    1) What type of "meat"? 2) Location on which side of Eastern Pkwy?
