Joe Ricchio has written a piece for Find.Eat.Drink. packed with advice on “How To Enhance Your Dining Experience“.
Go Late – If you want to dine at a more leisurely pace and time is not of the essence, make reservations for the later seating.
Most restaurants book at least two turns every night, so if you’re going to dine early than you’ll need to be considerate of customers who have reservations on the second turn. The second turn is much more relaxed, though please note that if you’re the last ones left in the dining room and half of the staff has gone home, it’s time to leave.
