Going to popular, hyped-up restaurants is both an obsession and an occupational hazard for editors at Eater. So we've all had our fair share of lines, multi-hour waits, and shut outs.
On the first episode of Eater’s Digest, we gathered Eater editors’ best tips and tricks for getting into restaurants with long waits, and then put a theory of our own to the test on a recent Saturday night at five of New York’s most notoriously busy restaurants. Plus, we discuss some of the biggest food news stories of the week, from a scourge of seagulls on the Jersey Coast, to the most recent shady move from a major food delivery service and more.
