Quick Question: Does Beaches and Cream have ADRs for a Party of 5?

Quick question: Does Beaches and Cream have ADRs for a Party of 5 (Me, DW, DS12, DD9, and DD6)?

I have a trip planned for late April and I’ve been watching the ADRs. I’ve seen several ADRs for 2 and a few ADRs for 4, but I have not seen any ADRs for 5 or more. I know it’s a small place, so do they even accommodate a party of 5?

Follow up question: Should I book a party of 4 and then see if they will seat all of us?

Yes they do take parties of 5. I know of one party that has such a reservation in March.

You could book 4 and try for the add on but you might want to have a backup plan.

You could also book for and continue to try to modify

Thanks. Hopefully I’ll get lucky when it’s my day to book!

Do this one first or nearly first and also try to have it as far into your trip as you can. It goes quickly and locks up fast. I keep trying to get a modification and there has been zero wiggle room since the ADR date back in late December. This was for 60+5 and there was little available and an hour after booking opened for it was gone and has stayed that way.

We are only doing 3 TS restaurants this trip, so it will be top on my list. I will be at 60+5 as well for Beaches and Cream.

What else are you aiming for and on what days?

I was planning on this order:

  1. Beaches and Cream on 4/27
  2. Plaza Restaurant on 4/24
  3. Via Napoli on 4/27

Any advice? I don’t have a leading reservation.

That works.

I don’t think you’ll have a hard time at all with the other two

I am there those dates :slight_smile:

Hoping for low(er) crowds that week!

Try booking for 6 - sometimes the system doesn’t like odd numbers. You’re not punished for the “ghost” (as a solo I regularly book for 2 and it is never a problem).

Good tip!

If push comes to shove, I’ve thought about reserving a party of 2 with my MDE account and then a party of 2 with DW’s MDE account (if there are similar times). And then hoping they will seat us 5 together.

I have a party of 8 for March, so you can definitely get bigger tables.

I was able to get an ADR for 7 in May 2021.

Yep just okay around with numbers. I’ve never had a problem checking into B&C at the podium and adjusting by one or two. We’ve also combined smaller parties there with no problems.

Update: I was able to get a Beaches & Cream ADR for 5 people. I was hoping to get an ADR at 5pm, but ended up at 4:20pm. I’ll take it though.

I’m really looking forward to that kitchen sink!
