Black Saturday is only five days away, so let's hope you're all sorted out with your resys. We'd hate to see you turn to the dark side to get things back on the rails. We are referring, of course, to the controversial professional resy scalpers.
But if it has gotten to that point, right now TableXchange has $25-$35 tables at Double Crown, L'Artusi, Bar Boulud, Convivio, and the soon to shutter Fleur de Sel. Celebrity Tables has $50 spots at The John Dory, Casa Mono, and Lure. Meanwhile, the membership service Prime Time Tables has Dell'Anima, Per Se, Raoul's, Balthazar, and more for $45 a table plus the $500 yearly membership. However, since they're so generous, PT Tables has a special promo for Eater readers: "I would like to offer EATER READERS the following. Two months promotion for 1 months FREE membership They simply need to log in with the promo code: ptt2009eater." There's nothing like reaping the benefits of love gone astray by charging desperate, foresight-lacking husbands $45 for a 10 p.m. slot at Scarpetta.
