Need a place for 4 12/18. Would love to do Frenchette but cant run no resy I think.  Pretty adventurous crowd.  Only constraint is staying in Manhattan.  Don't want to do tasting menu place.
 
Thoughts?

 
I find Bessou underrated and fairly easy to get into. And there are times when you can just waltz right in to Ko's front bar area.
Ko Bar was my pick too but I think he wants a place he can reserve?

5:30 & 9PM tables at Atoboy at the moment. For how long, I dunno. 

 

Also on the modern Korean tip, Osamil, O:N, or Hwaban (the last of which I think disconnected their Resy account)

 

Aquavit takes reservations for tables in the bar now, which is a la carte. I mean, it's $32 Cod sandwiches and whatnot a la carte, but we're used to seeing fancified burgers at that price, so why not a fancified filet-o-fish, I guess? 

 

A quick search of places I have saved in "My Favorites" in Opentable (which I'm sure will vary from your favorites... hell, I wouldn't even call all of "my favorites" my favorites) shows prime time at Cosme, Beatrice, Kyo Ya, Txikito, Mifune, Suzuki, Indian Accent, both Empellons, Hearth... only a couple of those grace the boundary of what I might think of as "adventurous" but I suppose that's a relative term.

The new menu at Indian accent is impressive. Plus they have a reasonably priced wine list.
