Time sensitive question re: celebratory dinner tonight

Hi everyone,

I need to find a reservation for a celebration dinner tonight. A quick opentable search showed availability for the following restaurants at varying times. Do any of these jump out at you? I've been to some of them before and some would be new. Also, are there any restaurants not on menupages that I should check?

Thanks so much in advance for your thoughts!

dylan prime
the modern
porter house
quality meats
scalini fedeli
strip house

  1. do you mean opentable? You can check reservation availability on Surpirsing that on a friday night all these places have tables open still.

    1. Menupages does not show availability. Is it OpenTable that you checked? Looking there, I see Eleven Madison Park has a table for 2 at 6:30 and 10 p.m. Definitely my first pick these days for a celebration dinner.

      1. Eleven Madison is very good, but the Modern is really a fantastic room, with wonderful food. The view out onto the sculpture garden is uniquely New York. Modern is it!

        1. I meant opentable. Apologies.

          Plus we ate at Eleven Madison very recently (we are big fans of it, as well), so we're looking for somewhere else.

          1. my husband and i love the harrison, but i'm not sure what your criteria are...

              Main criteria are delicious food and somewhat-romantic-but-not-overly-stuffy atmosphere. Also, there will only be 2 of us, so I'm not sure if the Craft chain would be a good idea, since I usually enjoy Craft best when I'm with a group so we can maximize the sharing options, but I haven't been to either of the latest Crafts.
