How far in advance for an 8pm Friday reservation at Lugers?

My 30th birthday is coming up in three weeks and I was wondering how far in advance I should make my reservations. I'm looking for 8pm on a Friday, do you think I'm outta luck?

    1. You might get lucky with a cancellation, but at this time of year, 6-8 weeks for primetime.

      1. I once tried 3 weeks in advance for a weekday night and all I was offered was 3:30! Good luck!

        1. Two thoughts:

          1) Great Neck is easier to book at than Brooklyn and the food is equal though the atmosphere is more restaurant-y in Great Neck.

          2) Call them and ask! :)

          1. Yes, I think you're SOL. They start taking reservations 2 months in advance, last I checked. And you're looking for prime time too. Couldn't hurt to try though.. .or go there and show them your license as proof of age, and maybe give a big tip...dunno...good luck and happy 30th birthday in advance...
