You make a dinner reservation (in Paris), and show up for dinner the night before the dinner reservation is made for.
Fortunately, had two (comfortable) seats in the walk-in area. Which was actually more fun than the dining room.
At 10 days away from home, my brain starts to falter.
Oh yes, I have turned up at restaurants to find my reservation was same day but different week, but haven’t been turned away. I just clicked wrong, okay?
