Reservations at Txikito?

I called today to make a reservation for a Friday night at Txikito since my husband and I will be visiting from Chicago and wanted to make sure we could get in. I was told that they didn't take reservations for 2 people since you could just come in and be seated with 2 people.

We want to go around 9:30 on the Friday of Labor Day weekend. Should I try again to make a reservation or do you think we can really just walk in and not have an issue? I don't mind waiting a little while, but everything I read made me think that they took reservations. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Odd, maybe a change in policy? I've made reservations for two before. I made one for three earlier this year, but subsequent trips have always been with a big group. Hmm.

      I think it's an unofficial policy change. I go quite often, and they do seem reluctant to give out reservations for 2, while easily granting them for 4. I think you might be ok by 9;30 on Labor Day friday, as the rush tends to lessen after 9, and anyway many NYers are out of town that weekend.

        Thanks for the responses. Maybe I'll have my husband call and try again before we're in town just to see if we get a different answer. I'll think we'll try it either way since it has been on the list for a while and this is our annual visit.
