Is it impossible to walk into a restaurant on a weekend without reservations now? Somewhat a rhetorical question.
Just a preface to my idiocy: I usually avoid eating out on weekend nights like the plague so I didn't know any better. Okay, now that that's out of the way... I have family coming in town tomorrow and I only realized yesterday that I prooobably should have made a reservation somewhere. So I tried calling Craigie, also looked at Open Table for Island Creek and Ten Tables JP, among others and I've come up with nothing. No reservations. My family will be displeased.
I'm looking for a table for 4 anywhere from 5:30-8 at a place with $30-$40 entrees. From the Open Table list, a few have caught my eye but I just want a couple of extra opinions. Brasserie Jo, Henrietta's Table, Ten Tables Cambridge, Les Zygomates, Market... or Insert Your Choice Here?
I also considered Neptune (my mom loves lobster, and I'm sure she will find the hot lobster roll delightful), but I'm not sure what time to arrive to minimize the excruciating wait. Is 5pm too late?
