Does anyone happen to have a hookup to get me in here ?
I will be in NYC in March.
Thanks a bunch.
Kevin, you're a funny guy.
Just show up. A classy guy like you should have no trouble talking your way in.
I dunno, most Kevin's are Irish, and their last name doesn't end with a vowel...:)
Yeah, I'm not a classy guy and I'm not Italian, so sadly I guess I won't be able to grab a perch there.
Veggo, I'm presuming you've been many times before ????
Only in my dreams, when my name is Vito.
Go in and drop a lot of f bombs like you occasionally do. I'm sure they'll effing let you in.
Sounds pretty fucking good. :)
Just call for a reservation. Highly entertaining.
Ok, but calling won't get me anywhere, right ????
Did you call??
They open at about 4:30 and just about anyone can get a drink at the bar. But not a table.
There's a reason co-owner Frank Pellegrino's nick-name is "Frankie No."
And this thread's in the wrong category. Rao's is indeed on the island of Manhattan.
Here's a fun read...and you ain't goin' :)
That is funny. What is really funny is the one time I went, I saw Rusty Staub there.
Here's another good read.
It IS a good read. And, as I suspected, it has really NOTHING to do with the food. It's an event. A happening. And from what I've read, it sounds like, nowadays anyway, the majority of the diners aren't even Italian :)
Please do let me know if you do garner a table. Dinners on me if I can join up in time.
And that ain't no joke.
Ya know, when we're in NYC, we're so focused on GOOD food that it's unlikely we'd even try to go. But a drink at the bar is always possible.
The food is fine, and you always get a good story out of it, which is priceless.
As the saying goes, to each his own. Our visits to NYC don't happen nearly often enough so, when there, we want better than "fine."
So, then, we'll agree: To each his own. I like a full experience and luckily I can afford to take some chances. Tomorrow's another day, either way.
