Valentine's Day is Thursday, everywhere but Tad's Steaks is booked solid, and for some reason your girlfriend hates Tad's Steaks. Fear not: we've locked down one intimate table for two at both Bowery bistro DBGB (their chicken for two is the real deal) and Richard Sandoval's appropriately low-lit Peruvian joint Raymi in the Flatiron. And the two bums who send us the best sob stories via Facebook or Twitter about why they deserve a relationship-saving last-minute rez will get said tables. Sure, you've gotta pay for the meals, but at least you won't have to settle for getting t-boned on Valentine's.
You messed up, and now you need an emergency reservation
