Plan B for Babbo?
We have an 11:15 reservation for 2 at Babbo on Thursday night, and are considering other options. I'll call tomorrow and Thursday in search of cancellations, and if nothing surfaces, we'll give the walk-in option a try (although we likely won't be able to make it there until 7:30 or 8:00, so I imagine it will be difficult to get a walk-in at that time, no?).
So I'm wondering if anybody has recommendations for a good Plan B in the neighborhood. If we get to Babbo and it doesn't look like we'll be able to get a walk-in, what is the best option in the neighborhood to try?
Thanks for the help.
11:15 is mighty late to be eating a carb heavy meal like most do at Babbo!
Blue Hill is right around the block from Babbo and has great food.
Our all-time favorite restaurant in the Village is El Charro on Charles and Greenwich Ave. Not in the price range of Babbo, but has great Spanish food and superior service.
I would say if you strike out at the bar for Babbo you should try walking into Blue Hill. If that fails I would get a cocktail and head back to Babbo for your reservation.
