Zoofari?

They were on living social, it ended last week and I bought tickets as a last night of the holiday treat. I didn't realise wine etc was included, looking forward to it a little more now :p

Later Evening & Early Morning

thanks all, I land at 10pm so as long as they are taking reservations after 11pm it's all good :)

Thanks for that, sounds just what we are looking fir, as long as it's edible I'm happy. I imagine my taste buds will be asleep by that point anyway ;p

I'll be arriving in Washington late evening and we'll need a bite to eat. Is there any late evening places open after 11pm? We are staying at the Marriott at metro centre, it will be a Monday evening ifthat makes a difference.

Also can anyone recommend anywhere nice for a take away breakfast near our hotel?

thanks in advance!

Zoofari?

Thanks wombat, well the whole holiday is a birthday treat so i have the excuse!
I have my eye on the lion lounge tickets at $175 so just have to convince the other half!

Zoofari?

Has anyone been to this? I've just noticed this year it's on the same day we are planning on being at the zoo and wondered what it was like?

Thanks all, I'll ask when I call so it will be a complete surprise :)

Thanks All :)

one last question, do you have to have the tasting menu to "qualify" for the kitchen tour?

brilliant! I won't be too worried about the 10.15 option then!

Yes it's this friday/saturday I need to call, I did a practice run on open table last weekend so I knew what I was doing and ended up with 9.15 showing as an option so fingers crossed I do as well this weekend. Great advice on phoning, I'll try that too!

I'm bringing my husband to NY for his 30th Birthday in a few weeks time. I bought him the EMP cookbook for his birthday after looking for a topical NY cookbook, unfortunately I hadn't realised how difficult a reservation would be and now he's obsessed about going, my own fault I know...

ANYWAY

we are only around for a weekend which is unfortunately mothers day weekend so I'm anticipating getting a very late reservation if one at all! for either the Friday or the Saturday.

If we end up with a late reservation does that mean we get rushed through the service without the extras? I'm worried with some people saying to leave 2-3 hours for a meal there this would be a silly idea.

I was going to email them and explain his obsession and see if I could get him a peek in the kitchens but I'm worried they wouldn't do this for a late reservation.

Any advice :$
