Buena Comida con Buenos Amigos

Tonight Susan and I went out for supper with friends: her coworkers Cindy, Naomi, and Leslie and Leslie's husband Dave. We went to Lady J's, a catering business that is open for meal service over the noon hour and select nights of the week. Tonight they were serving a buffet of Mexican food, so we decided to try it out. It was really good!

Lady J's is in the building used by the former German Hungarian Steak House, the restaurant at which we had the groom's supper before our wedding nearly 17 years ago. Lady J's catering menu looks to be quite varied, so it's not surprising that the buffet tables were stocked with a large variety of dishes: three kinds of spicy soup, nacho chips and two kinds of melted cheese, tacos with lots of fixin's, and several kinds of burritos, enchiladas, chimichangas, and fajitas. The dessert table had four or five choices, too.

We got there around 5:30 P.M. and didn't leave until 8:00 P.M. Although we did eat our fill, most of that time was spent visiting--it wasn't 2.5 hours of nonstop gluttony! We had a good time with good friends eating good food in a new (to us) restaurant to which we will be happy to return.
