*Need a miracle: expert Chowhounder help pls
Need a place anywhere in Manhattan that is:
Upscale (price is not a problem)
Funky, but not like down-home funky, but hip and different
Also, food must be decent.
This is the kicker: everywhere is booked. Suba, Public, Tasting Room, WD50, Red Cat---all booked
I need from 7pm-8:30 for seven people for this Saturday.
Please... I will be very grateful for help. :)
Rose Water..Thanks..about Yakitori Totto..I called was hung up on and then busy signal...
the pickings are slim, but have a look at opentable and see what you can get.
seems to me that the best option would be to call the places that don't take reservations, unless you're a large group, like blue ribbon and landmarc.
Perhaps, Amalia? It's on 55th St., b/t B'way & 7th Av. Delicious Mediterranean cuisine. As regards the ambiance, I thought the decor was beautiful with a very hip feel, i.e., more downtown than midtown. Even though you'd be going during pre-theater time (restaurants in that area tend to empty out around 7:45), it's a big place, and it's relatively new, so you might have a good chance of getting a table. Their website is still under construction, but the telephone number is there: http://www.amalia-nyc.com
