last minute dinner for tonight-please help

fein Dec 19, 2007 09:05 AM

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.

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

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