Wylie Dufresne's popular new East Village eatery Alder had a no-reservations policy. But that’s no longer the case. The restaurant now sets aside a few tables per night for diners with reservations. Which should make it slightly --- though not much --- easier to get a table there. Alder, 157 Second Ave., New York, NY 10003, 212-539-1900.
It's just been announced that chef Michael White is following in the footsteps of many of his Big Apple peers by opening a restaurant in London. Keith McNally and Daniel Boulud have done the same.
