Little Owl Backups...tomorrow.

bastet212 Apr 30, 2008 06:04 PM

I know, i know, there have been a ton of little owl posts recently. Heres the deal: My bf and i are intending to attempt a walk-in table at little owl tomorrow night (he's moving out of the city in a week and i was unable to get reservations). Although were both willing to wait, we know theres a possibility we wont get a table..... so what are some near-by backups? I know perilla and annisa are btoh nearby, but i iassume theyd be just as difficult to get into sans-ressies.

so suggestions? i just want good food and a great time......

      Second Cornelia Street Cafe. Po is small so may be difficult without a reservation. Le Gigot, also on Cornelia Street.
