Ink and reservations, and Picca
I'm visiting LA in January and am interested in dining at ink. How difficult is it to get a reservation - it would be on a Monday? The website specifies 14 days out, but nothing further. I can't imagine it would be intense as a reservation at French Laundry, but you never know. I'm not sure how hot the local hype still is. Also, and thoughts/info on the getting take out from "Ink Sack"?
Any thoughts on Picca?
Picca is very good. Menu is a bit cumbersome and I strongly reccomend asking the server to guide you in ordering. Tell him or her what you like and dont like and how much you feel like eating. Its mostly small plates so not unlike ordering sushi.
If you like Italian, Sotto right below Picca is outstanding.
