Del Posto - late night
I am wondering what the scene is like at Del Posto after 10pm on a Saturday night. My husband and I are celebrating an anniversary there, and I couldn't get a reservation there before 10 -- I'm afraid the restaurant might be "dead," which will just be depressing. Does anyone have experience dining there late-ish?
That's not really "late night" in terms of NYC dining. I had a 9:30 reservation on a Saturday in the summer in the enoteca room. Stayed until at least 11, and the restaurant remained crowded.
I had a drink at the bar on a recent Saturday night at around 11pm, and the place looked full. The vibe was very festive. There was a real energy.
I rarely go out to dinner before 9 or 9:30 and most restaurants are still packed and seating diners long after I sit down, especially on a Saturday night. I actually think they take reservations until 11pm, so you'll be fine.
