Firstly, thank you to all who responded to my earlier post (waaay earlier, probably in the winter). As a result of that very helpful feedback, I decided to book at Sustain and was very excited to eat there. Unfortunately, they called me yesterday to say they could not honour the reservation because they are/were closing. So, the questions are:
1. We were thinking of attempting Barceloneta as an alternative; however, I understand it does not take reservations. How long of a wait would we expect on a Monday at around 8ish? Is there a bar on the premises to loiter at while we wait for a table?
2. Any suggestions for cheap and cheerful breakfast places within walking distance of Collins and 18th? Something like a diner, bagel joint or that idea.
With advanced thanks, I look forward to any responses.
