People who saw Rabelais included in the list of restaurants in the recent New York Times article about Portland have been calling the bookstore for dinner reservations.
One of the unforeseen results of the New York Times piece has been the repeated calls we have been getting for reservations. We are included in the listing of “Where to eat in a city of abundance”, in the context of all those restaurants. So folks eager to eat at some of Portland’s finest have been calling our number to reserve a table. The desperation in some of their voices has led us to believe that our good friends also mentioned in the story have been booked solid.
