How not to win friends... Azucar in Silver Spring [moved from DC/Baltimore board]

Driving home from the restaurant last night, my wine and I elt like a bowl of soup. As we neared Wheaton we thought about Sergio's Place and Yet Gol but we go to both a lot and we wanted something different. We have not been to Azucar in a long while so I had Kay call them and see if they were open. It was 10:45 and they said sure, they were open till 11:00. We said we could be there in 10 minutes and would they seat us and could we order, just to be sure. They said yes, come on by. So I headed up driving a mite faster than the MoCoPD may have exactly approved of and in well less than 10 minutes we were a block short of Bel Pre RD when we got a call back on the cell phone: Don't bother, they were closed. Kay protested that they said we could come less than 5 minutes ago and they said didn't matter, they were closed! By the time we got back to Wheaton, both Sergio's and Yet Gol were closed.

I think that once a restaurant says come by and you give them an exact time frame they need to live up to it. I really like Azucar but I doubt I will be going back for a long time. If at all.
