Ottimo's new place on New Hampshire is called Caffoteria I think. Not sure if it's open yet.

Dlux is a slightly more expensive and much better than glatt bite.
In my experience. I know many people say otherwise. I just never had anything that wasn't mediocre in Glatt bite.

There is some discussion of that beginning here:

Also, both Shloimy's and Simcha caterers have a "simcha in a box" option. I have recently done some research on this myself and some results are below:

Prime 95 $32pp+18% gratuity=$38 min 30
Glatt Bite $38 pp min 40
Dlux $37.50 pp min35
Yapchik $35 pp +250 min 40

Milchigs:
Pizza Place $35pp min 40       buffet style-pay for food minimum $450 plus I think $100 for room
Circa $30pp+80 min 45
Out to Lunch $35pp min 40
Ottimo $40pp min 30 or $35 pp min 40
Greenhouse Cafe $35pp min 30         Buffet $29.30 min 30
Kava $38pp min 30      Buffet $30 min 30
Estreia starts at 35 pp I think, less if you do 70+ people. They have a basement hall as well that is very nice

I am a huge fan of Sushi Nation, it's good sushi, extremely quick service (I call to make an order, and by the time I get there my order is usually ready), and the buy 2 get 1 free turns average prices into great prices.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

That's assuming you're eating alone.

Thatís why I said most people. A very small percentage of people buying sushi in stores are buying 3 rolls.

I beg to differ, unless you are buying in a grocery store most people are buying more than 1 roll.

Most people that go to aisle 9 and buy sushi there are going because of the sushi and not the grocery. 90% of sushi sales in aisle 9 are less then 3 rolls.

IDK what happens in aisle 9, but any guy who sits down for a meal of sushi eats at least 3 rolls.

Wow. I'd definitely need some proof to trust these stats.
