It's not Tadich, but John's Grill does have private rooms, and it's certainly an old SF joint. http://www.johnsgrill.com/
Dude, I am wondering how this tread is still going. It's underwear. Some men have perfectly good reasons to wear an undershirt. Others do not. Of all the things to hold really strong opinions about what others are doing I am slightly amazed this is getting so much attention and passion. In some other thread, men are talking about buttoning dinner jackets for God's sake and no one really seems fazed. Of course, we also live in a world where people with ostensibly good...

Depends on how windy and how cold it is. When it's windy, I fasten all of them
Eason, thanks! I'll be in touch once I have coherent plans. Meeting locals is definitely a plus. Anyone have coffee recommendations? Will I have to get in touch with Phat Guido to find the best cappuccino in HK?
Again, thanks for the suggestions. Any suggestions on a good Shanghai style restaurant? Doesn't have to be fancy.
