What Happens When You Order a Manhattan at Recessions

dc.eater.com — The scene: It's about 4 p.m. on a weekday. We trip over a worker cleaning up as we take the stairs down to the carpeted den that is Recessions.

@nickkokonas as i've said before, i think the aviary gets the "a la carte" balance right. mix of deposits + encouraging walk-ins.

@nickkokonas no argument there. my issue is with a la carte restaurants that rely too heavily on resies (steakhouses booking up 30 days out)

Oct 24, 2014

. @CarlosAntonorsi FAIR POINT! alas, sometimes a good mix of resies + walk-ins (say, 50/50) results in better flow + fairness for everyone.
