Badmaash II: The Maashination

Sun March 29 at 6:00 PM, Badmaash
108 West 2nd Street, Los Angeles, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
It is long past time for another MeFi visit to everyone's favorite DTLA Indian Fusion Gastropub: Badmaash!

Based on our current "Attending" numbers, I have made reservations for 10 at 6 PM. As the restaurant says: "We do not seat incomplete parties and we have a ten minute grace period for reservations."

If you are on the "Maybe" list and wind up coming, I would suggest making your own reservations, then we can see about seating near each other. You can make those by phone at (213) 221-7466 or via

Thanks, everybody, and see you there/then!


I am going to give this another day or so to get final attendance numbers, then put our reservations in and confirm our time. If you can, please move your name to Attending rather than Maybe if you're pretty sure you're coming.

The restaurant is kind of a stickler for being there on time -- last event we only had a 10-minute window after the reservation hour for everybody to be there -- so please make sure to give yourself plenty of time to find parking. Otherwise, we may not be able to guarantee seats for you.

Feel free to memail me for my cell number if you think you'll need to send me updates the day of.

Oh, and I'd recommend bringing cash -- last time, we wound up sharing a bunch of stuff (along with individual dishes), and it was way easier to throw money in a pot at the end.

Let me know if you have any questions! Very much looking forward to seeing everybody!


Hearing no objections, I am collapsing the dinner's wave function and making it real. ----

It feels like forever since a big group of us went to Badmaash and had a stellar dining experience, and past due for a return group trip. I'd like to propose Sunday March 29th at 6 PM for the date. What do y'all think?

/shakes fist at Alterscape for MUCH better pun!

Our next trip to GameHäus, we need to add "and punning" to the activity description. That was the REAL game that afternoon. :D

Given said collapse of the wave function, should I infer that we will simultaneously eat and not eat at Badmaash that evening?

Is that a given? I think we could do the wave if enough people show up.

Reading this menu makes me feel like Ron Swanson, in that I literally want to eat all of the papri chaat. And smoked tomato chutney?? Maybe just all of it.

I have literally never had indian food as an adult, and this seems like a good way to get my culinary feet wet!

Excellent: that makes 10 for our reservation. Thanks jetlagaddict (and Room 641-A!)!

Oh, too bad I didn't see this sooner. Maybe next time.
posted by betweenthebars at 3:34 PM on March 27, 2015 my showing up would be a problem?

Hey guys, mild work related crisis in effect, so I'll have to duck out. If either bswin or betweenthebars wants to take the extra spot, please go for it...

We are here, along with rednikki and under_petticoat_rule!

Alas I read raihan's comment too late.

Sorry it didn't work out this time, bswinburn! I think we're going to shoot for another GameHäus visit next month if that would interest you.

And thanks to everybody for coming out -- it was a great time.
