Restaurants are a good place to visit after a fatiguing working day. At least for those who can afford it. You can meet some friends there and get fine food whichout the need of cooking or doing the dishes afterwards. That’s why it was so hard to get a place there not too long ago. Arrogant receptionists did not bother for your need of food or socializing unless they knew you personally (knowing you from the papers or the TV often could help as well). Even the intercession of Ulysees S. Grant or some Andrew Jacksons in best case would grant you a lousy table close to the lavatory.

But now things have changed. Now even a free dessert would bring many customers into the empty restaurants. The party is over – at least for a while. So normally visitors do not need any reservation these days. And if they do (maybe by old habit) they see no need to bother cancelling them in case they decide to do something else instead. Some would call it arrogance while other might think it is just quid pro quo.
