As most of you may know, it is impossible to get a reservation here unless you walk in when they first open or come in before service ends. Well, in my case, I called the restaurant at 10:30 p.m. and was told that if I got there in 5 minutes I would be seated before service ends at 11:00 p.m. I jumped into a cab and told the Russian driver that I have a once in a lifetime opportunity and I need to get to 1529 Filmore in 5 minutes. I encouraged him with a very "rich tip". The cabby sped down Geary Street at 70 mph as if he were Bruce Willis in a Die Hard movie and got me to SBP in 4.5 minutes. Stuart and the gang were awaiting for me with open and very welcoming arms!
Thank you Stuart and Nicole and the rest of the SBP's team.
