I made reservations at Asiate today for a birthday dinner for two. I asked the reservationist if we could have a seat by the windows for the special occasion. She told me that it was up to the restaurant manager that night. Is this true or did I not know the secret handshake? I have reservations at Babbo for the same night, so if they're jerking me around, I may just go with Batali instead. Anyone know? Thanks.
