Battersby on Saturday night? Alternative?

erica | Dec 5, 2012 01:40 PM

My sister and I, (both pitifully uninformed about eating in Brooklyn) are heading to a concert at Barclay's on Saturday night. I've read quite a few threads on eating within a walk of the arena.

I think we are going to try for a table at Battersby, which opens at 5:30pm and, like most of the places I checked, does not take reservations. ( I realize that this is about a 20 minute walk from the arena.)

Questions: How early must I arrive to be sure of a table in the first seating? Arriving at 5:30ok? Anything on the menu we should not miss?

If we are not able to score a table, what should be our backup plan between Smith Street and Barclay's?

Arthur's on Smith? (opens 5pm)

Rucola? (opens 5:30pm)

Chances of finding a table for 2 around 6pm on a Saturday at any of the above? Other ideas I should consider? We'd much prefer eating outside the venue and do not mind dining early..
