Peculiar Trend with APDC

teflontom | May 12, 2009 02:04 PM

I am hoping someone can help me allay my paranoia about getting and keeping a reservation at Au Pied de Cochon. We just returned from a visit this past weekend. We had tickets to a show on Thursday which we had purchased in January. At the time we also made arrangements for accomodations, and shortly after that we made reservations at APDC for Friday night at 8. On Friday afternoon, I called to confirm the reservation, and they had no record of it. Of course they didn't have any openings and we had to make last minute arrangements.My problem is this is the third consecutive time this has happened to us. We have been patrons at the restaurant from the beginning. Granted, we are only in town a few times each year and cannot be considered "regulars". The lady who answered the phone when I called to confirm stated " I do not have your name on any of my papers". Papers? There seems to be a trend here over the past two summers. I can't help but think that celebrity has worked it's way into the mindset of this place. Any thoughts?
