New York Diet

Image of La Esquina via
As I have learned, many restaurants here only allow you to book reservations 21 days in advance. Not later, and certainly not earlier (unless you want to eat at 6pm or 11:30pm). Our dining schedule is certainly much later now that we live here, but eating after 11pm is a bit tricky for me. My case in point is La Esquina, a tiny little taqueria and cafe. Last Friday at 10 am their phone lines were open for reservations for 21 days from then. Do you think I got through after a zillion times of hitting my redial button? Nope. In any case, we continue in our quest to eat our way through the greatest spots in this gastronomic capital - including La Esquina.
