Don't look now, but Valentine's Day Black Tuesday looms. If you've been slacking and haven't made plans yet, many restaurants around town are quickly booking up. But fear not. Eater has scoured the available last-minute reservations to make your procrastinator's search a whole lot easier.

Below find 10 excellent restaurants with reservations available. But remember: fortune favors those who act quickly and some of the prime dinner time slots may be full already. An added bonus: many of these spots can be easily reserved online through OpenTable, though you could also call up the restaurant ASAP.

Not sure you want to fuss with the red-heart sprinkled holiday madness the day of. Consider booking a special date night out this weekend when the reservation books might be a little more flexible.
