Husband and I wanted dinner at a very popular spot tonight. Reservations are 2-3 weeks out for tables but the bar is first come first seated. So, at 4:50 we were second in line for the 5:00 open. Kitchen opens at 5:30.
We snag our favorites, on the corner,back side of the room. Bar is full by 5:15, 8-10 people standing waiting for seats to open.
We have a cocktail, peruse the menu and about 5:30 order a couple of small plates.
And folks are seated for their tables so several seats at the bar open up. The couple next to us speak to one of the bartenders who nods and starts to set up 4 seats on the long side of the bar. They turn to us and ask us to move into their seats so they can have 5 seats together.
Our food had just come out, wine poured and we said no. Thats not where we wanted to sit, we had planned so we were able to sit where we wanted and at this point in our evening we did not want to move.
A couple on the far side of the bar had just been seated and they moved next to us, so the 5 did get to sit together. The couple were quite happy, cause they liked the new spot better.
Would you of moved?
