Just an update for my fellow chows! I called Bronzino yesterday for a reservation on Sunday evening. Anyone who has visited Bronzino knows that the door opens into the front dining room just feet away from a majority of tables in that room. I requested a table in the back room.
The response was "we'll try but we are no longer taking reservations for specific rooms". My response was to cancel my reservation.
I can understand that they don't want to lose business because tables are not available in the back but it seems that they may lose more by not taking specific reservations.
I guess I'll wait till spring to return.
