On Not Dining Out on Valentine's Day

Looking to take your sweetheart somewhere hot on Valentine's Day? If you didn't reserve sometime in late 2003, you're screwed. SLNY reports,

one ibl, two ibs -- 228 0822 -- 1 ring, fully booked
mas -- 255 1790 -- 3 rings, fully booked
blue hill -- 539 1776 -- 1 ring, this is jill, hold, fully booked
balthazar -- 965 1414 -- line busy; 3 rings, hold, fully booked

PART II (the top, if combined with a pre-dinner romp)
bouley -- 964 2525 -- 1 ring, how may i help you?, 11
annisa -- 741 6699 -- 1 ring, 5:30 or 10:30

Apparently, there's an 8:30 reservation still available at Nobu Next Door. Unfortunately, while you were reading this, an i-banker at Goldman snapped it up on OpenTable. Better luck next year!
