Looking for a restaurant near Rockefeller Centre for dinner

Arriving in NYC on a Wednesday night and are staying near Rockefeller Centre. We have no idea what time we will be ready to go for dinner, so are looking for somewhere that can take us without a reservation.

However, we would still like it to be a stellar dinner! Not all that price concerned...just want it to be a great meal.

We are dining at Le Bernadin the following evening, so probably something other than a strict fish/seafood restaurant would work.

    Would the Bar Room at the Modern work for you?

      It's not really about a late time...more about I don't want to have to commit to a time at all. Most likely we'll want to go around 7 or eight depending on what time we setlle into our hotel.

      Bar Room might be a good idea. Been to the dining room but never the bar room. Is it just tapas or does it have a full menu?

        There is a full menu in the Bar Room. Entirely different from the formal dining room. Small and larger plates. Delicious!
