I really hate hassles dining...
I hate having to make plans in advance.
I've never made a reservation at Bestia for example.
Hell, I walked into my favorite salon the other day and managed to talk my way into a fit when they are typically appointment-only.
I only had to book Saison like a couple of weeks out and I doubt Noma is much better than that. Maybe it's a little better, but with 100x the hassle.
Hell, I booked Quintonil less than a week out... and I just walked into EMP lol Hell I even backdoored N/Naka and got in there a week out.
I am not a fan of anywhere I can't walk into generally speaking but any longer than a month out and I'm put off.
The only exception of this I am thinking of making is for Faviken.
The price thing is just a commentary on the world. I am kind of surprised sometimes that restaurants like Noma don't charge 10x what they do currently.
