LOCKED DISCUSSION

Hi everyone
I have made reservations for 2 in these places this weekend.
My friend eventually cannot come and it would be a sad thing to cancel.
So...
Anyone here wants to join me?
These are my reservations:

Eleven madison Park on june 6th at 17:30
Per Se on june 7th at 22:00
And la bernardin on june 9th lunch at 12:45

Allon

  1. Wish I could if I were in NYC. Before canceling, why not call the restaurants and ask if you could reduce the # of guests down to one? Sometimes they allow it.

    1. I'd be interested in the emp res on june 6th at 17:30. Please provide your email.

        Hi, you can send me a message on Loon76@gmail.com

      2. EMP and Per Se accept solos all the time, since you are still within the grace period for cancelling you would probably be able to modify the rez unless of course you don't like dining alone.

        1. As others have said, all of these places do solos all the time.

          While this is a generous offer, I'm not so sure whether I would want to spend upwards of 4 hours (e.g. EMP dinner) with a stranger -- either as the host or the blind invited guest.

          This isn't meant as a slam on anyone. It's just that if I'm going to be sitting and eating with someone for 1/6 of a day, I really *want* it to be with someone who I know I will enjoy being with.

          (And this is like the OP's first ever post.)

            solid point.

            but i guess i'd sit through a free meal for 2.5 hours if it's somewhere i otherwise would not be able to gain entrance to.

            as such.

            1. re: kevin

              what makes you think it's "a free meal"?

              1. re: ipsedixit

                "While this is a generous offer,"

                but i guess i was surely mistaken.

                  Uh, that's what I said, and I'm not the OP.

              2. re: kevin

                I'm 99% certain the OP is not footing the entire bill :) The OP may correct me if I'm wrong.

            2. Enjoy. I hope you get to meet some interesting people.
