During the 24-hour lottery period, active links for open dinners will take you to the lottery submission form; you can submit your entry for the dinner of your choice through our website, only.
Once the 24-hour lottery period has closed, we will draw entries at random to assemble a guest list for each dinner. If your name was drawn and your party was added to the guest list, you will receive an invoice for you reservation within a few days of the lottery. If your name was not drawn, you will receive an email informing you that you've been placed on the waitlist for your dinner of interest.
Please note that your reservation is not confirmed until your invoice has been paid. Your payment—online, via credit card or bank transfer—must be received within 48 hours to confirm your reservation. Thereafter, unpaid reservations will be void.
First, we'd like to thank you for your support and for your interest in joining us for a dinner. We've sincerely enjoyed meeting so many new guests and making new friends throughout the seasons.
As interest in our dinners grew, offering reservations on a first-come, first-served basis became too challenging. Given the number of reservation requests submitted only seconds apart, the process no longer seemed fair: we are not able to accommodate the majority of requests submitted within minutes of opening reservations.
In an effort to make the process of offering reservations more fair for all, we are now awarding reservations through a lottery.
This is how it works:
There will be four lotteries in 2023:
the lottery for June reservations will be on Monday, May 8; the lottery for July reservations will be on Monday, June 5; the lottery for August dinners will be on Monday, July 3; and the lottery for all September dinners will be on Monday, August 7.
Once the 24-hour lottery period has closed and guest lists have been composed from the random draw, our website will indicate which dinners have filled and which dinners have open seats remaining. You will be able to submit a reservation request for any dinner that has seats remaining, and add your name to the waitlist for any dinner that has filled.
We are grateful for your support. With hundreds of requests for reservations, we are sadly unable to accommodate the majority of inquiries.
