Minetta Tavern - Anyone been lately

c

I have been reading about some new reservation policy where only friends of restaurant during "prime time"

1. Is this true, or have people dined recently and gotten a good table?
2. When would I need to book to get Friday night reservation in October for my birthday? or is walk-in the best choice?

On a side note, It's between Minetta, Aldea, and Corton for dinner, and I figure I'd like to try Minetta given all of the buzz around it lately. Do you think that's the best choice?
