Just returned from a few days in New Orleans. As usual, I had a number of great meals. I wanted to do Friday lunch at Galatoire's (I was a single diner), so I got in line around 11, expecting to get a table downstairs and enjoy a nice relaxed lunch.
When I hit the front of theline, the hiost asked if I was on the list. When I told him no, I was informed that there were no tables available.
I thought that downstairs was first come first served?
