Not since the heady days of... I don't know 97, 98 I guess have i seen a place as packed, Reminded me of Henry's End at its height.
We walked in, early I thought (approx 7PM on a thursday), and the place was PACKED. 30 minute wait, which is ok, in general (Smith St, etc, even 5th Ave but Midwood?) but we were not in the mood, there was no real waiting area either.
I understand, the Times, NYMag, the blogs. but really? 7PM? PACKED!? We waited less at the good fork on Sat. w/no res.
so anyone actually eat there?
