Have to meet friends who are picky and non-foodies for dinner tomorrow night...late posting, sorry. We love great food and prefer byob.
Any recommendations for short notice reservations?

    Check out Pesto.

      A few off the top of my head, in order of my preference:

      Scannichio's
      Tre Scalini (doubt you'll be able to get a table in short notice)
      L'Angolo (another long shot for reservations)
      Pesto
      Chiarella's

        I'd call Mr. Martino's Trattoria as well, they may be another tough reservation (they're only open 3 days a week, Fri-Sun) but it's very good.

          while I enjoyed our recent meal at Mr. Martino's, I found the menu extremely limited. Only 2 chicken dishes (one was a special), one fish, no other protein aside from a very dry side of grilled sausage.

          Because of the economy I have personally found it easy to get into almost any restaurant these days by simply walking in.
