Tue December 4 at 12:00 PM, Eataly
Museo della Via Ostiense, Via Raffaele Persichetti, 3, 00166 Rome, Italy (Map & Directions)
Hi all Roma MeFites, Looks like we've settled on Eataly. Still slightly up in the air as to whether it's Monday or Tuesday but for now, we'll meet at the Eataly front entrance at 12:00 PM, Tuesday, 4 December.

Count me in for lunch. Evenings might be a bit of a problem. Looking forward to it.

I made the restaurant suggestion last time, so maybe it's somebody else's turn now.

Right before the book fair..mmhh..maybe I can make an exception for Mefites ;) .

For supper, I know a fantastic restaurant for meat, if you guys are into meat, in Piazza Augusto Righi, 36 (Osteria della Carne) whose owners are also friends of mine. But it may be slightly inconvenient for people without a car, as the damn metro B closes way too eartly!

For lunch....let me see!

Oh, that came just into mind.... http://www.roma.eataly.it/ Eatily at Stazione Ostiene is very easily reachable by Metro B during lunchtime , and with the exception of Ristorante Italia which costs and arm and a leg, there's plenty to eat. On the flip side, it may be crowded. I'll look for more.

I had planned on going to Eatily this trip. That would be great.

So it's Eatily, aqsakal?

Sounds good to me! Good to reach by public transport, too. My understanding is that there are several different eateries inside - any particular one known for good food and good prices?
Anybody else joining in?

I propose we meet at the front entrance to Eataly at 12 noon on Monday the 3rd. I can do Tuesday as well. I tried to parse out the individual restaurants but the web site was no help.

Lil' Peanut and I will have to take another raincheck; I can't yet lift the stroller on and off public transport after busting my tailbone during labor :P

Xurando: Fine by me, although would slightly prefer Tuesday, but no big deal. I agree the website isn't very helpful, but I'm sure we could do a quick recce and decide on something that inspires us.

romakimmy: a pity :-( But I'll need to come into Rome by car anyway: taking Mrs aqsakal to a med appointment late morning, and anyway since 1 November I can't ride my ancient motorbike with a Euro-0 polluting class engine in Rome. So we could happily swing by and pick you and Peanut up if that would help...

Xurando: it occurs to me that, if you have no other plans after lunch, there are two worthwhile sights to see which you might or might not know, each only 20 minutes on foot from Eataly (excellent walk for digestion, if the rain holds off). One is the so-called "English cemetery" (but more correctly the non-Catholic cemetery), and the other is the Centrale Montemartini museum. I'd be happy to visit either of these again with you, if you're interested - been looking for a long time for a good excuse to go back.

I can easily switch to Tuesday. It will actually work better for me, would love to go for a walk after. Is your friend Sasha still in Rome?
posted by Xurando at 9:01 AM on November 28, 2012

4th or 3rd is ok with me for lunch.


Congrats Mom..I mean, Kimmy :D !

Tuesday it is. Officially made the change. Hope that works.
posted by Xurando at 12:45 PM on November 28, 2012

Tuesday great.
And as far as I can see from the website, the Osterie Romane option looks good - something genuinely local for Xurando to experience, and probably not too expensive.
Sasha - are you in?
posted by aqsakal at 11:29 PM on November 28, 2012

Time to count ourselves, who's coming tomorrow?
posted by elpapacito at 11:14 AM on December 3, 2012

I'm in. Sasha tells me he has a heavy 'flu and won't make it. No word from romakimmy.
I'm coming on the Fiumicino trenino, and shall be at the front entrance to Eataly at 12:00. My mobile is 3299287105 in case there's more than one "front entrance". And hoping there's no snow...
posted by aqsakal at 12:36 PM on December 3, 2012

OK, see ya tomorrow !
posted by elpapacito at 3:28 PM on December 3, 2012

Will be there at 12. Let's meet at the entrance closest to the train station. Looking forward to it.
posted by Xurando at 9:34 PM on December 3, 2012

Ahhh I just saw your lovely offer aqsakal. Apart from seeing this too late, what with the carseat and a stroller eh, un casino della Madonna :)

Buon pranzo belli!
