Need help with restaurant for tonight

Criteria: party of three. Time around 8:30 or 9:00 tonight -- time is not definite because one person is flying in from out of town. Really good food, moderately priced, type of cuisine secondary, except no Asian (we've been doing plenty of that recently). Location: midtown east, murray hill, union sq, nolita, LES. Probably a place we can go without reservations. Would Keen's Pub work? What else? Thanks!!

  1. Have you considered Blue Smoke? Or are you looking for something more serene?

    1. The outdoor tables at Tabla bread bar should be lovely tonight, and despite some recent negative posts here, I think most of the food is quite tasty. Love the lamb nanini.

      1. re: prdct

        I agree - I've always enjoyed the food there as well.

      2. the pub at keens would probably work. you might have to spend some time at the crowded bar beforehand but that's a good thing. it's a cinch that neither the knicks nor the rangers are playing so you should have a clear field. the eagles have a concert tonight at msg but your timing should be perfect. give it a shot.
