Hey Chowhounds:

I need help! Had dinner planned tonight for Milos, but the person who was craving it dropped out--and since its a little out of our way for the commute home we are trying to regroup! We are 4 for an early (5:30) business dinner. I already tried to get into Keen's--no luck and I am spending waaaayyyyy too much time here searching through the boards!! Is there a hand who can help? Would prefer seafood or steak, had enough Italian, Asian, Chinese, etc. for a while!! Help me hounds!! I have loved every place I tried so far that has been recommended--save me with a decent place I can get into for dinner!! THANKS!!

    Try Amalia in the Dream Hotel...Lovely space, creative cooking (and a cool, trendy vibe).

      What about Picholine?

        Don't know if this fits in with your geographic needs or if you've checked it yet, but Pampano has lovely seafood, with a Mexican touch.

              Actually trying to stay not too far from there--and subways too! Thanks. On a whim I tried calling Keen's rather than using Open Table and I got a table--thanks anyway--due to postings I am looking forward to trying Keen's.

                  I've found that even if OpenTable shows no openings at all or none at the preferred time, calling the restaurant directly -- as you did -- can result in getting a reservation because restaurants do not give all their reservations to OT.
