Large group at last minute!

Hey everyone -

So I just found out that I have to get a reservation tomorrow night (Saturday) for 9 people at a reasonable time (not 5:30 or 10:30). Does anyone know of someplace that may be able to take 9 without too much hassle? I realize this has been asked before but I'm a terrible searcher.

Better yet - A walk-in only restaurant that accomodate 9 fairly easily.

Thanks in advance

      Okay - problem solved (kind of). We got an 8:30 at Quinto Quarto. Reviews are not great of this place...but I'm happy to have something relatively hassle free.

      thanks for your quick reply Kathryn.

        FYI re: Tabla: We were 8 at a round table. Nine would be a tight squeeze. But they can certainly accommodate larger parties upstairs at strung-together tables.

          I'm looking to make a reservation for 8 people, 2 of whom are out of towners who we want to take to a fun place but are somewhat picky eaters. I was thinking Otto but checked out some of the other places you recommended-- I like Otto because of the huge round tables. Do any of the other places you mentioned have round tables for larger groups? Odd question, I know.

            Asia de Cuba has some huge round tables. Although not a top pick on this board, out of towners will be impressed.
