    Yeah, Tiffin does this, too. I’m guessing it works about as well at Sabrina’s as it does at Tiffin, which is to say not well at all. How hard is it to take a reservation? Yes, I know that people don’t show up, so spare me. I am willing to give you my credit card number to show you how serious I am about eating at your restaurant.

    Yeah, I’m a regular at Sabrina’s and calling ahead sometimes works out well, but most times doesn’t.
