Today, Lord Bauer gives us the lowdown on how to snag a seat at the "hottest" favorite restaurant. The secret? A mere $25,000. He says, "Generally, if you’re an investor (and from what I’m told a share often starts at $25,000) you’ll get priority reservations and access to a favorite table. Some will give investors yearly credits of several hundred dollars, and other will let an investor run a tab so there will be no check when it comes time to pay." Failing access to oil wells or a trustfund, dine with Tablehopper's Marica Gagliardi. She's everywhere you want to be at these joints. For reals.
