Sam (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) is an actor waiting for his break in theatre. In the meantime he is working in a prestigious restaurant that everyone wants to eat at. Meals cost at least $250. Sam is in the basement room taking reservations for a colleague who is stuck in traffic.
The comedy revolves around what happens from making reservations and Sam’s dealing with the chefs and other employees.
This is a witty, cleverly done comedy that will make you laugh. Jesse does all the roles
Jesse Tyler Ferguson does an exceptional job.
Oh can I get a reservation???
