A reader tells us, “I just got a call from the John Dory saying that the restaurant is closed due to a busted pipe, and they can’t honor our reservation tonight; they’re giving us a table at the Spotted Pig instead. Any idea if this is true, or if they’re just bumping us for someone else?” No, Jay-Z is not at fault here. A reservationist just told us that indeed a pipe burst during service last night (“it was quite a mess”). The restaurant is working to fix it and may not be open for service tomorrow.
