I'm cancelling my 9:15 reservation for 2 at Public on V-Day. Figured an interested chowhound should get first crack at it. Let's say i'll cancel it on opentable at 7pm tonite (thursday)... so, if you're the first to book it at 7:01 or so, you should be in luck (assuming their reservation system works that way).
I can't just give you my name to use the rez since there's a credit card guarantee assoc with it... they're doing some special pre-fixe dealy that night. Good luck.
