Welcome to a special shutdown edition of Crunch Time, where Eater searches such sites as OpenTable and CityEats for hot reservations. Eater tipsters have reported smaller crowds than usual at such popular restaurants as Range and Rasika, courtesy of a lack of government employees racking up expensive tabs while they're furloughed. Has such talk translated into actual available reservations? Here are some decent dinner options for two that Eater has noticed for tonight (subject to change quickly). It also wouldn't hurt to wander into a restaurant today and check out the walk-in situation (or make an attempt at a no-reservations place like Little Serow).

Noticed any emptier dining rooms around town? Share your experiences in the comments.
