It’s more difficult to get a reservation at your favourite restaurant in Sydney than it is to book an international flight out overseas (now that’s saying something). After just over 100 days at home, it’s no surprise that everyone has the same idea, a reservation to reconnect with friends and family over a tasty cocktail and bowl of spaghetti alla carbonara.
To land a reservation at a decent time; you either need to know the right people or find out when the restaurant is opening up its next round of bookings.
I had a friend tell me the other day that she stayed up until midnight one night waiting for a restaurant to open up the next week of reservations for six weeks time, six weeks! Or better yet, I recently saw a December booking for six at Totti’s on a Saturday being sold online for $600 (just a seat at Totti’s!) the Fettuccine, Sugo, Stracciatella and Totti’s famed Tiramisu not included.
The reality is, that even though we’d all like to be dining at our favourite restaurant, social-distancing rules and all, everyone in Sydney has the same idea and it seems that simply may not be possible.
So, the next best thing? Throw a dinner party and order food from the restaurants you so badly want to with all your favourites (on the plus side, there are no rules at home).
Providoor makes entertaining easy, your favourite chefs have done the hard work, giving you the chance to make the most of these anticipated moments to reconnect with the ones that you’ve missed the most.
