NY Times Gives Rosemary's One Star, Slams Ridiculous Reservations Policy
For this week's NY Times review, Pete Wells stopped by Rosemary's in the West Village, and while he found the restaurant to be charming, the reservations policy was anything but. Not only will the eatery not take advance rezzies, they won't jot down your cell phone number, forcing you to circle around the eatery like a vulture, waiting for the folks to flee their table. The critic is getting feisty, take a look:
"Although it may sound like science fiction, a remarkable new device has the potential to change the way we communicate. It is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand yet powerful enough to enable you to place and receive calls wherever you happen to be — even inside a bar.
Yes, the “cellular telephone,” or “cellphone” for short, is real, and it is available now. One day, the owners of Rosemary’s may discover that this futuristic gadget can be a handy method of notifying customers when a table is ready. At the moment, they seem to have adopted a wait-and-see attitude."
Keep in mind that this is the same restaurant that told us that we couldn't put our names down to wait for an hour unless our entire party was there to begin said wait. Whaaa??? Anyway - the food gets some good notices, read the full review here.
