Two for Eight

Tables Open at Mesa Grill and China Grill; Busy Signals at Gramercy Tavern and Babbo


It’s 4 p.m., and that means it’s time to play Two for Eight. We just asked ten restaurants the best time they can squeeze a couple in for dinner; you need only make your chosen reservation. (As always, we make the calls but don’t guarantee the results.) Today: Flagships.
