Lunch is a good option!
Date: January 25, 2013 01:21AM
After failing to get a reservation at TFL on our last trip to America I tried again this morning for our trip in March.
I was up at 4:40am (time difference makes it so much harder!) and was dialing at 4:45am and also clicking on OpenTable. Right on the dot of 10am pacific time, one table for two came up on OpenTable, for 12:15pm. I clicked on it, but it was already gone.
At roughly 10:12am pacific time, while I was still getting the busy signal (using hubby's mobile), my mobile rang.
It was my credit card's concierge service, they had gotten through!
I was patched through to a reservationist and she gave my THREE options for what time we would like to have lunch.
I chose one and we went through all the details and I have an email confirmation sitting in my inbox. Happy. :-)
So, if you can, use a concierge service (not that they worked for me the first time) and if you have the option, try lunch!
