IMterview: The Impossible Reservation at Spruce

New, 3 comments

No restaurant has caused more of a stir this fall than Spruce, and while some of the opening hoopla has passed, a normal dinner reservation remains nearly impossible to nab, which wouldn't be big news in other cities, but San Francisco isn't used to scheduling reservations a month ahead for a restaurant not named The French Laundry or Chez Panisse.
