MADE a reservation 2 weeks ago for a very special dinner - 10 people coming from all parts of ny, including upstate ny. called about 2 hours ago and the guy tells me that he doesn't have my reservation and, anyway, they now have a private party that night and he can't take us. but then he goes on to get beligerent and tell me that *I* must have called the wrong restaurant and it's not their fault but when i called the restaurant, i confirmed the address of the restaurant and the subway information. i am furious furious furious.
however, i called 'elia' on 3rd avenue and the gentleman there said he could accomodate us so i'm coming back to tell you about our dinner there. and he'll make money off me because i definitely need a few drinks now!!!!!!!!!
