Non-Date Eating on Valentine's Day
Since a lot of places will be packed with dater's on V-day, what are some of the "must try" NYC treats that will likely be accessible Saturday night for dinner? Don't care about ambience, I only care about the food and avoiding a mob scene. Any thoughts?
Focus on places that don't take reservations -- that's what we usually do. Couples on dates don't want to wait for a table. We usually do neighborhood places, but you could try a place like Mary's or Pearl Oyster Bar or Spotted Pig and see what the wait looks like...(note that I haven't tried any of those places on V-day, but they don't take reservations and are "must try" sorts of spots if you are from out of town.)
