I have been to Babbo only once when I took my parents there for their 25th anniversary and absolutely loved it. However, that was during the time when the Babbo craze was really at its peak. And now I have a serious craving for it.
It has been somewhere that I have wanted to go back and try, since their menu is extremely extensive and I did not get to try some of their signature items last time.I know it is still an extremely popular reservation, however I have heard some people having luck just going and trying to get a table on a whim. What are the chances of getting a table if I just go at around 5:30 on a weeknight? Perhaps a seat at the bar would be more realistic but that would be fine also I presume (although I prefer sitting in the dining room). That is not really prime time dining hour for NYC, and I have had luck getting into other difficult restaurants at that time. Seems like it may be worth a shot. Any thouughts?
