Distrito -- What's the Deal with Reservation Policy

Marissa | Oct 6, 2010 07:25 AM

Our family of five had a nice lunch at Distrito yesterday, but what is the deal with their reservation policy? I called to say (a) we were driving in that morning from DC; (b) it was a special occaison, our college student's 18th birthday. But all they would offer was an 11:30 am or 2:30 pm reservation. Took the 11:30 am. It was very tight for us -- particularly as rain hit us on I-95. We get there at 11:30 and the place was EMPTY. Stayed EMPTY until noon. When we left at 12:30 there was still seating available.

I realize the desire to turn over tables, but banishing parties of 5 to those unrealistic time slots, I don't get.
