Hello All,

We are taking my father out tonight for Fathers Day (no one including my father is actually available on actual fathers day). I tried getting a reservation at the Mermaid Inn (2nd ave btwn 5th and 6th), but they are booked on tables for groups of 5 although they did mention we could just try walking in. I was told they don't take reservations for the back patio and we are going to try that.

My question to all the chowhounders is if I can't get get in or if the wait is too long (over 1/2 hour) what's good in the immediate neighborrhood that we could walk to? cuisine isn't an issue although chinese, thai and mexican should only be last resorts.

I've read on these boards that Cacio e Pepe (sp?) is supposed to be good is it?

Where else nearby is worth it?
