What kind of place is it?

Some type of restaurant.

Yeah, I’ve been there.

It is a delicious restaurant—very fresh tasting Thai food. I’d recommend it.

It’s hard to get into, though. There can be very long wait, even to get a reservation.
Actually, I have a hilarious story about how my girlfriend finally got us a reservation. After weeks of calling, they were like, “I don’t think you understand, you can’t just stroll in here and get a table.” And my girlfriend—in a moment of genius—replied, “I don’t think you understand. I’m the assistant to the CEO of Fluther dot com. And he wants a table, today.” And on the other line, she heard, “Hold on, let me see what I can do.” And we went that night!!

It was a highlight of my professional career. And a fine restaurant.

Yes. Delicious. Not Thai, Vietnamese.

Can I get in for lunch?

Lunch, probably. Dinner, much more difficult.

I’ve never had problems getting reservations for dinner… then again I’m usually trying on weekdays and calling 2 weeks in advance.

Super tasty, well worth the advance reservations!

@breedmitch
Right—Vietnamese. Thanks for the correction.

Ben—that story is badass. Your girl deserves some serious props. I might try that line myself!
