Ideal Reservation Time if the Restaurant Closes at 11:30?

stah00 | Feb 7, 2010 07:38 PM

I'm taking my boyfriend out to his birthday dinner at a fancy restaurant that closes at 11:30pm. I've made the reservation for 8 as I normally do, but I'm concerned because it closes relatively early - if I plan on doing a 5-course tasting menu, will we be rushed through it? Should I push it up to 7pm?

I know I know, I'm being picky but I REALLY want the timing to be perfect! I hate being rushed through meals, especially if I'm going to be paying a lot for it!
