Reservations at popular NYC restaurants

Hello everyone. I have a question I hope you can help with!
When a restaurant says "reservations taken up to 1 month in advance" what does that actually mean? I know Babbo is very clear (so for 11th Feb, reservations open today 11th Jan) - but is that the case for every restaurant? Or can it be 30 days for example? I'm particulary interested in Lupa and Blue Hill. They both say 1 month, yet on Open Table for Lupa last date you can book is not 11th but 10th Feb, and for Blue Hill it is even one day earlier, 9th Feb. I know this is probably because they are setting limitations on OT, so it's best to call, but when?? So my question really is, when can I call Blue Hill and Lupa so it's on the day their books open for 1 month in advance?!
Thank you!
