    First off, I would recommend having them put you on the waitlist. I have been on the list and they usually end up having a cancellation and they are very good about calling.

    You can try Gotham, which is nearby. Also, try Union Square Cafe or Eleven Madison Park for other Danny Meyer restaurants.

        If you don't have your heart set on the formal dining room, the tavern room (front room with bar area) is walk-ins only.

          Olana would be a nice alternative that is a bit less expensive and is very comfortable with superb food and service. Easy to get a res, too.

            I love the tavern room for a good weekday casual dinner...if you're looking for something as formal as the main dining room, it's not at the same level. I like Gotham Bar & Grill a lot. I hear the Modern is quite good.
