Pgh - Tamari - Can 2 get a seat on Sat w/out a reservation?
Going to a concert Saturday night. Want to finally eat at Tamari beforehand. Wondering if my wife and I get there around 6:00ish if we'll be able to get a seat within 30 minutes or so? I've heard the place can be very busy, so figured I'd pick the collective wisdom of this board...
In case you're wondering, seeing the Twilight Singers at Mr. Smalls. Can't wait!
ah, ok. Well, I usually visit during the week - but I haven't seen the restaurant really fill up until around 6:30 ish. It may be different on a day where most are off of work.
I think if you get there a bit earlier, say 5-5:30 you should definitely be okay. Further, might I recommend sitting at the open kitchen bar (unless it's really nice outside). The restaurant will likely be loud no matter where you are seated, this way you get to a show to go along with.
Tamari is one of my most frequently visited restaurants in Pitt, which reminds me I have some more photos to put up on another site.
Don't miss the bacon and quail egg appetizer!
