Tanoreen- uphill alert!

I arrived at Tanoreen at 5:30 last night, party of 3, looking forward to supporting Rawia's new restaurant location. The new spot is gorgeous, corner location, tons of windows and a full bar!

I was asked if we had reservations, which seemed odd for a party of 3 at 5:30 in a restaurant 1/2 empty. There were at least 15 tables open. When I said no I was told their first opening was at 9:30. Was there a hovering crowd of 5:30 diners waiting to get in? No. Were there empty tables pushed together waiting for a big party? No.

Tanoreen is not on Opentable nor do they take reservations on their website. As well, I've never recalled needing a reservation in the years I've been going there. Am I missing something?

Oh, how the mighty have risen.

Uphill alert.
