I'm getting really tired of hitting re-dial every week starting at 7:59 am only to be told once I get through that there are only 5 pm and 10 pm tables available for 2. My husband and I have a young baby at home, so we're REALLY limited in days/times that we can get a babysitter and go (i.e. Friday or Saturday evenings 7:30 or 8 pm seating). Is it because we don't have Amex's Centurion concierge to call in the reservation for us? Is the restaurant creating artificial buzz? We've also been trying to get a table at Daniel for some time now (we have a giftcard that we'd like to use, otherwise I wouldn't even bother) and have been struggling. We've even been rejected from Beauty & Essex multiple times, even when calling the minute they open their calendars. Is it because the economy is on a rebound and NYers have money to blow again? Sorry to rant, just a bitter mom that's trying to have a decent date night or two. Boo.
