While lil' sis and the middle '87 were enjoying cocktails and oyster shooters at Butterfly Restaurant, back at the Ferry Building, I met up with Chuck of Sunday Nite Dinner and FoodGawker. He had to finish up some work and then rushed over in a taxi so I wouldn't have to wait long. How nice! And really, it was great to finally meet up and find out that he was just as nice in person as I thought.
I opted for Imperial Tea Court since a tea house seemed like a relaxing place to sit and chat.
We drank tea, of course.
Something with rose petals for me.
And a chrysanthemum tea for him.
Then lil' sis and the middle '87 arrived and it was time to go back across the Bay.
Total bill for two cups of tea? $14! Really! The teas were nice, but they do place a premium on atmosphere.
Bye Ferry Building! You were more hype than substance for me.
