I don't have rezzies and I wanna go to Osteria Mozza tonight for dinner, possible?
I know what you are thinking, this broad mush be smoking crack. I'm not, but I really, really, really want to try this place tonight. Has anyone on this board been able to walk-in and have a meal at the bar? What time should I try to go?
If I don't get in or I can't wait for hours on end, is there another restaurant that I can go for a nice dinner.
I've gone to Mozza several times without a reservation and it's not bad. Two weeks ago i went with 3 other people at 6:30ish. We waited for 20 minutes at the bar, had a glass of wine, were seated, then got moved to a table that had opened up because of a cancellation... As i said, not too shabby.
the mozza bar is for walk-in's only and it seats about a dozen. best time to show up would be just before 5:30 when the restaurant opens for dinner. that's exactly what i did on saturday after a movie at arclight. waited outside for 10min and that was it. i wouldn't try to go with more than 1 person as it gets harder to find open bar seating for 3 or more.
if you go during prime time, you might end up waiting half hour but the food is definitely worth it!
