Minetta reservations - prime seating still impossible?
This has been discussed before in other threads, but they were about a year or so old. Can anyone offer any tips or insight for trying to secure an 8:30pm reservation for 4 on Saturday 2/2? About to start trying this morning and feeling like it just ain't gonna happen! Really don't think we can do before 7 and don't want to eat too late (10).
Will also be booking ACME and deciding later.
So I tried OT at midnight and, of course, the only openings are 6 and 10pm. Such a turnoff. Will try the phone lines this morning.
Even more frustrating is that my wife is not entirely thrilled about ACME. So while I plan to have a backup in place and then try Minetta closer to 2/2, I'm now back to square one. Which makes me almost turned off to the point where I don't want to go to Minetta!!
And no, we can't do 6pm :(
even on busy weeks they hold back prime tables, but those are released last minute, possibly only hours before the seating.
For anyone that was interested: I was on hold for a half hour starting at 9am, but finally got through and was able to get 8pm.
