Best time to go to Avec?

Heeney Jul 6, 2012 02:20 PM

We are looking to have dinner at Avec and drinks at Aviary.
We thought of doing drinks before dinner, but are wondering how long the wait would be to get into Avec of we showed up at around 8:30 or 9.

    Short answer is... hard to say? Is this a Friday/Saturday night? I'd expect a long wait on those nights. How big is your group? At avec, the smaller the group, the better.

    You could always call them before you go -- like, if you plan on eating there on a Friday, just call them up on some other Friday at around the same and see what they say.

      It would be two people on a Saturday night.
      I'll try your suggestion of calling to get an idea.

      Three years ago, I showed up 15 minutes before Avec opened for dinner.
      I got seated right away for a table for 4.
