Thu September 8 at 1:00 PM, Cantina LX
R. Rodrigues Faria 103, 1300 Lisbon, Portugal (Map & Directions)
I'l be at LX Factory next week in Lisbon (Sep 5-9). LX Factory is a converted factory now full of design studios, art shops, modeling agencies and interesting cafes and restaurants. If anyone else is working in the area and wants to take a break in the afternoon or wants to come out to this interesting place, let me know.
I'll be there all day and all week at one of the offices. So I figured if anyone else is around we could grab a chocolate cake and espresso at Landeau
or drinks at Ler Devagar bookstore
or gelato at Chef Ninos

I'm up for that. What about lunch? 5th or 7th best for me, I think.

Sounds good to me! 7th is a bit better for me.

I actually just arrived at Lx Factory today. The place is always growing it seems in defiance of the economy. Just noticed the new 1300 Taberna restaurant which is in a nice lofty space.

While I cannot, unfortunately, attend this meetup as I will be engaged in living my normal life in San Francisco on those days, I am glad that you posted this, vacapinta, since I'll be in Lisbon for a few days at the end of September -- am so happy to find out about such cool, interesting places! Thank you!

You're welcome, hapax! Let me know if you need any Lisbon recs. I come here pretty often. (or post an Ask Metafilter question)

In the center of Lisbon, my favorite place to sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy the free wi-fi is Royale Cafe.

Regarding the meetup: By the end of today, I'll just make this a confirmed meetup?

Sure. What's the timing? The 7th is now looking shakier for me, at least for lunch, 8th being better.

Ok. I'll be at Cantina LX at 1pm on Thursday!

chavenet: 1300 Taberna is only having a soft opening so their opening times are unreliable right now.

Once you arrive at LX Factory (there's only one entrance) and turn left, Cantina LX is the first building on your left. Impossible to miss. You can see photos of me linked in my profile.

Deal. See you there!

Hooray! Had a great 2 hour European lunch with chavenet at 1300 Taberna in which we also downed a bottle of Douro wine.

Must do this again.

As added bonus I discovered a wholly new corner of the city full of marvelous things. (See map & links above for a taste.) Thanks, Vacapinta!

No photos from the lunch. But I added a couple photos I took of the place we had lunch!
