Matthew's on Eastern Ave
What is the secret to getting seating at Matthew's on the weekends? I've only eaten there once (on a Monday around lunch time). One weekends it always looks like standing room only, so, sadly, I don't even consider going there.
You give them your name and then go downstairs and drink at the bar until they call you. It's easier if you go a little later in the evening, like 8:30 or 9.
I've never had a really long wait no matter when I went. You'd probably have a longer wait at PF Chang's on a Saturday night.
It helps if you go on a night when the creative allaince does not have an event or after the event has started
