Charles (The Next Waverly Inn??) Opens Tonight, But You Are So Not Getting In

News from John DeLucie’s camp: Charles, the clubby West Village spot he consulted on with head chef John McAllister, will open tonight (tonight), presumably with one very fashionable Halloween party (you’ll remember the owners, a designer and a promoter, are aiming for exclusivity). Thanks to a Waverly Inn–like no-photography rule and a complete and total lack of reservation line (talk to the hand, people), it may be a while before you get to set foot in the place. But you're welcome to try your luck with reservations@restaurantcharles.com. Or just look at the menu and eat your heart out.
