Friday night, Avec or the Publican

Plan to have late dinner 9:30-10 on Friday night. What would be the wait at Avec? Or would I be better off making a reservation at the Publican? Thanks.

  1. How many people? If it's one person, I'd say whichever you prefer, but if it's 2 or more, make the reservation. I love Avec, but there will be a wait.

    1. I've been to Avec lately as 2-top or 4-top around that time, and the wait was no more than 15, 20 minutes. Of course, that might just be luck of the draw.

      I suppose if i were you, the deciding factor would be the kind of food i'm looking for, and the atmosphere. They are both my favorites. Have fun.
