Babbo reservations surprisingly easy: did I just get lucky?

Nor'easter | Apr 5, 2005 10:27 AM

I just got off the phone with Babbo, having successfully made a 8:00 reservation for May 5. I have my outlook calendar set to remind me every morning at 10:00 to call either Per Se, if I want to try to get a reservation two months out, or Babbo, if I want to try to get a reservation one month out. I have tried Per Se on several occasions, and I have only been able to get reservations twice (a third time I got a same-day reservation by putting myself on their waiting list). Today was the first time I tried calling Babbo. I started trying right about 10:00 and got through at about 10:03 or 10:04. Is it always this easy, or did I just get lucky?
