Stick around town and cash in on open reservations

Summer is nearly over, but you have one last chance to score that tough-to-get reservation before the fall madness sets in. Labor Day weekend is a dining connoisseur's gold mine: As people head out of town, tables at some of New York's hardest-to-get-into spots open up.
