That place is so exclusive, Even the owner's never been Allowed in.
And they only take reservations On the day of the reservation, During a five-minute window Between 4:00 and 4:05 then that means They're still open for tonight.
what are you going to do, Be the first caller? that's how my uncle, troy Won a kayak.
And if you're wondering If that was the same year He got lost at sea, it was.
So what do you think? well, it is the fanciest Restaurant in the city.
