Tasting Room Gets Uppity

Tiny East Village restaurant The Tasting Room, this year's Zagat Survey Grocery-style success story with a food rating of 27, might be letting its newfound fame go to its head. Reports food blog The Hot Plate,

"How did you hear about us," the host at the Tasting Room asked me when I made my reservation, when I confirmed and when I showed up at 10 pm on Saturday night. I think he expected me to say, "Why, Zagats of course"... When I hesitated at a 10 pm reservation, the host asked if I had heard the Zagat news and recommended that I take the table, implying that they would be even harder to come by in the future.
