My wife and I are coming back to Vegas, as we always do in September, for a three-day conference. Since the SLS is opening August 23rd, and José Andres will have a new place there -- Bazaar Meat by José Andres -- so on July 1st, I made reservations for September. This afternoon, however, I received an email -- nice enough, by the way; very polite -- informing me that, due to a buyout of the entire restaurant for a private party, the restaurant has to cancel my reservations. They would like to accommodate our party either the day before (we're dining at é), or the day after (we're at Jean-Georges).
Clearly I'm not going to cancel é, but I moved Jean-Georges to Thursday. Now I'm waiting to hear from the restaurant to see if they can seat us on Friday, but I confess to being skeptical . . . not only is it my nature, but Open Table shows no reservations are available.
Ideas? Suggestions? Has this ever happened to anyone else? It's a first in my experience . . .
