How to Deal with No-Shows

2012_no_shows_emp1.jpgAt Eleven Madison Park, the reservationists now take down credit card numbers and charge guests $75 if they don't show up. EMP owner Will Guidara notes: "With the length of our wait list and how many people we're turning away, it just became really difficult to say, 'No, no, no,' to so many people and then have people who were supposed to be joining us just not showing up." With this new system, they apparently only get a few no-shows a week. [WSJ]
