my birthday is tomorrow and no reservations... where to go?

nicholel | Oct 1, 2009 07:45 AM

My birthday is tomorrow (friday) and my husband didn't make any reservations. Where to go? I wanna have a nice dinner but not one where I will wait forever. Or if I am waiting, maybe a wait at a nice bar? I'm open to a lot.

I brought him to Scarpetta for his birthday (which wasn't too crowded on a Friday eve and it had a nice bar). Any places like that?

He thought we'd try our luck at Blue Ribbon Sushi but I tend to go for more caloric splurges on my birthday. I had wanted to try the Minetta Tavern but he called too late in the game for an appropriate dinner reservation. So I'm stumped.
