last minute dinner for tonight-please help

My dad(61 but very very young at heart) has a date tonight but every place he calls is booked. He is looking to spend $100-$150 on dinner and drinks, probably one or two each. He works in the 20's off broadway. He is willing to travel a little bit but not too far. Looking for American but can be flexible on cuisune. Any recs? Thanks.

  1. has good restaurants by there... And that way you can see which reservations are available.

      1. awww...

        lots of options depending on if he's talking on the early side 6:30-7:30...

        Bar Stuzzichini
        craft bar
        les halles

        lots of options...i say craft bar.

        1. he decided to change his area of town to make it easier. i gave him all the same things you mentioned. not sure if he tried them. i appreciate the help.

          1. What about the lovely tapas at Alta on West 10th? That's always struck me as a great date place. Dark, candlelit.
