Most definitely an open table is a great invention — online restaurant reservations are awesome, it is just so much easier than dialing for dollars. Recently, I had lunch with a friend of mine in the city, and she suggested we check out North Pond. I know it’s a hot place, so I checked with OpenTable to see if there were lunch bookings available. There were, so I booked a table for two for 11:45 AM (they open for lunch at 11:30 AM).
Upon arrival, it was quite obvious that it should have read We were the first customers of the day! By the time we left around 1 PM, maybe five or six other tables in the smaller pond-facing room had filled up; the main restaurant area was completely empty.
Don’t ya just feel stupid for making a completely unnecessary reservation ?
Oh, the food was interesting — I’ve never had a steak sandwich served with a fried egg right up on top, just staring at you. I politely removed said egg and enjoyed the sandwich just fine. Good pretty food — but I suspect dinner is the meal to target for a visit.
