Slippy: So true!
I've witnessed some excellent impromptu happenings at Dali as well. It is a family place, in the sense that the family is a gigantic buch of people who love good food and fun and are from all over the world. I believe the owners (husband and wife) are Russian and Spanish - or perhaps it's Argentinian and Russian? In any case: a great place. Personal favorite product/detail at Dali: drip cups (for fat) stuck into the bottom sides of the slabs of prepared meats hanging at the bar . . .
