The Washington Post's Tom Sietsema is really frustrated with the growing trend of DC restaurants that don't take reservations: "In effect, these restaurants are saying, 'It's more important for us to fill every seat than to treat diners like guests' … Who invites people to dinner and then makes them wait until the cook is good and ready to let you in, much less eat? By not guaranteeing tables, restaurants dismiss whole groups of would-be patrons." [Washington Post][Photo]
