We won the food lottery that night. We showed up without a reservation at 5:35pm on a Sunday night. There had been enough people in line when the place opened at 5pm to fill the bar. They were fully reserved. We got the one open table in the house, which was a high top with a view of the kitchen. We were celebrating, so went all out with the "Craigie Experience" eight course menu. Everything was a new adventure. Everything was fantastic. Some of it was simply the best of whatever it was (fish, veal, scallops, etc.) we had ever had. And we're foodies, so that's actually saying something. The wine pairings were perfect. All in all, a completely memorable experience made even more perfect by the chance of it all. But make reservations if you want to be able to count on the evening!
