Let’s say it’s a weeknight, but there’s a wait for a table at Annapurna Cafe. Plus, you know it’s going to be pretty noisy there. If you’re feeling flexible, just go upstairs and eat at Yeti Bar, their sister spot, where you’ll find alcoholic slushies and an impressive lineup of Indian, Tibetan, and Nepali snacks. Just don’t tell anyone else about this strategy - because then more people will come to Yeti Bar on purpose and infect it with noise. It’s perfect for a light meal with friends, or a low-key date night.
