Walk-in Recs

Greetings Manhattan Hounds, my wife and I will be traveling to your great city this Thursday, departing Sunday. This trip came up short notice, and so far I have only booked The Modern for Friday night. A slight panic is setting in as I worry we wont be able to have the NYC food experience I desire.

It seems we will have to brave being walk-ins for Thursday and Saturday nights, and I was hoping to get some feedback and direction from you kind folks. I am considering the following spots to try either night :

-Boqueria

-Momofuku Noodle or Ssam

-Ippudo

-A Blue Ribbon establishment

-Mark Forgione

-RedFarm

-Public

I guess my questions are where might we have the best success at snagging a table, the wait times we might encounter at say 7:30-8ish or 9:30-10ish, and if you have any other alternative recommendations. We enjoy a fun atmosphere, but lo-key works as well. Price isn't super important as long as it's worth what is being charged.

*Also, has anyone seen anything decent still available on OT for this weekend? Saturday night we will be joined by a third, FWIW

Thanks,

Chris
