2013_ken_Friedman_%212345.jpgSpotted Pig restaurateur Ken Friedman explains the economic advantages of having a no reservations policy: "When you don't take reservations, people have to wait for a table; they go to the bar and hang out. As every restaurateur knows, you make much more money selling a drink than you do selling a plate of food. You buy bottles of booze, open them, pour them and sell them for many times more than what you bought them for." [F & W]
