RESY (reh'zee) n. 1. since 2003, the slny index that gauges the relative heat of a restaurant. 2. the time at which one can secure a same day reservation for a party of two, unless otherwise noted in parenthesis; measured with a simple phone call. 3. resy@shelovesny.com

l: I think I'd like a steak au poivre tonight.
m: It will be the Balth then, my sweet.
l: Mmmm.
m: slny says the RESY is 9. Does that work, or shall I call Keith?
l: 9 is fine, Matthew. Counting the seconds, of course.
