Help! I forgot to make dinner reservations for tomorrow (NYC) -

Saturday night is usually date night for my husband and me, and I am mostly in charge of our dinner plans. I am forgetful so I run into this issue frequently - I'm too late to make a reservation at most of the places on my list of restaurants I'd like to try.

So my question is - what are your favorite last minute spots - places where it's possible to get a reservation w/ 24 hours notice or that doesn't have crazy long lines for walk-ins?

My favorite one of these historically was Jacks Luxury Oyster Bar. We made a last minute reservation here and had an awesome meal.

For help with tomorrow's plan - I live in Chelsea and would be open to anywhere downtown-ish. Thanks :)
