Restaurant Week, theater district - is there no hope?

I am excited and aghast that restaurant week is coinciding with a business trip to Manhattan. Excited - a chance to try some new places. Aghast - will all the places be packed and serving sub-par menus?

I arrive with a day to spare before my commitments - a Wednesday. I should be able to dump my bags by 10:30 am. Do you think I will have time to run to the theater of my choice and pick up tickets for a matinee, get to a theater district, midtown west or east restaurant, and make the show? I'm comfortable with taxi's the subway and walking

What are the chances I can get in w/out a reservation? I will be solo and have no problems eating at the bar. What about Ruth's Chris Steak?

Finally - what places to recommend? I'm up for anything but I get a fill of Asian at home.

It all feels so overwhelming I'm almost thinking of forgetting the whole restaurant thing and just eating some good street meat and concentrating on getting to shows...
