Twenty-seven seat ramen (and dumpling) phenomenon Toki Underground is a famously tricky place to score a spot. As of today, however, it just got a little easier—provided you like to eat early.

The new reservations site CityEats has brokered a deal with Toki to turn over one reservation for two people at each of the following times: 5, 5:15, and 5:30, Monday through Thursday. Two additional four-top tables will be reservable via the site at 5:45 and 6 on the same days.

Now we can only hope that Little Serow will follow suit. We hear that last week, the wait at Johnny Monis’s tiny Thai place was up to two hours long.
