  1. Maybe Taboon? Great Middle Eastern food. I don't know how hard it is to get into though.

    1. You answered it in your title: try Hell's Kitchen, if you mean "get into" without a reservation. If you're willing to make a reservation but are just worried about making one at such late notice, you could also try Toloache, which is usually pretty easy to get into. Taboon is showing only one spot on Opentable, at 9:45.

      There are also a million places you can walk into if you're looking more downmarket (Thai, greek, burgers, etc.).

      1. The best restaurant in Hell's Kitchen is Hell's Kitchen, a wonderful place for fresh, innovative SouthWestern cuisine. They don't take reservations after 7, but the wait is worth it.

        1. Uncle Nick's, on 9th, b/t 50th & 51st, serves very good Greek food. My guess is that if you go after 8, when the pre-theater has left, you should more easily be able to get a table.

          1. Hell's Kitchen, Whym, Xing, Queen of sheba, Sushi of Gari 46, Bann, Hallo Berlin, Chanpen should all give you a range of options.
