Snag a Hot Table This Weekend

There is one benefit to being stuck in town over Labor Day weekend: It makes it a bit easier to land a table at a usually packed restaurant. Here are the places we’d hit.
There are tables up for grabs at Central Michel Richard this weekend.

Try your luck as a walk-in at the often-mobbed Palena Cafe, Graffiato, or Estadio.
