Making the Cut

Citron58 | Jan 17, 2007 11:14 PM

A friend gave us a gift certificate to Cut for Christmas. We decided to use it on Feb. 17, which is the weekend before my wife's birthday. That's where the trouble began. First, the restaurant said it could not accept the reservation until a month or less before the reservation date. We dutifully marked the calendar and called back today, only to be told that the only available time was 6 p.m.

The host was friendly enough. He apologized and said there was nothing he could do, but this is one of the things I really hate about trendy restaurants. We've supported virtually all of Puck's endavors over the years. I didn't expect them to keep a log of our activities, but I did think that Puck was above this sort of snobbishness. This has never happened to us at his other restaurants.

I've heard mixed things about Cut, but my wife was really excted about going. I'm curious if others have had the same experience and if so, what they think. I sort of like to go where I'm wanted.
