How to score a reservation at Grace, Schwa or Goosefoot?

MardiGras | Apr 9, 2013 06:26 PM

Traveling from New Orleans to Chicago June 6 to 9. I have waited up till midnight the past 2 nights, logged onto opentable at midnight, and all that was available both nights was a 900 Goosefoot. Grace totally booked at 1201 am! I booked the 9 pm but ideally we would prefer an earlier reservation since I assume its a long meal. The machine at Schwa is always full.

So, are their any tricks for a foodie out of towner to get into these restaurants?

If we can't get into these three, what's the next alternative? I've got Tru booked already. Any other new up and coming restaurants? We did Alinea several years ago and don't need to go back. Great meal but would prefer to try something new. Thanks for any help!!!
