For the Desperate: Last Minute Feb. 14 Reservations

Eater has gone on record encouraging diners to refrain from braving the tasting menus, crowds and general insanity that comes with eating in a restaurant on Valentine's Day. But that doesn't mean everyone needs to take that advice. For those who want to eat in a restaurant on Friday and haven't made the plans necessary to do so, get relieved. There are still some options available. Here's a selection of romantic, festive or fun restaurants that have a table free Friday night between 5-10 p.m on OpenTable, or alternately on CityEats. Sorry, slackers — you may have to eat early or late. These will probably go fast, so start booking NOW.
