Traveling from Philly to NYC for the weekend. Staying with friends in Chelsea. I have a back up 8pm reservation at Sparks but I'd like some other options. Sparks seems a little "safe" and I can get a good steak in Philly. I'd rather have a memorable, unique to NYC type of meal. I've called around and a lot of places are booked already. I'm looking for something along the lines of Dell'Anima (completely booked), Maialino (booked), Osteria Morini (booked). Recently, had a great meal at Da Andrea. Leaning towards Italian but open to American, French or Japanese. Prefer to eat in Chelsea, EV, WV, GV, MPD. $75 per person including 2 drinks, tax and tip (we aren't the three course meal type. A few starters for the table, two drinks, pasta or entrée, usually no dessert) Thanks in advance for your help!
