If you crave seafood from Le Bernardin, book a table as soon as your hankering takes hold. Reservations are highly recommended, since crowds flock to the acclaimed restaurant for both lunch and dinner. Call Le Bernardin directly to make a reservation, or log on to OpenTable to book online.
If you don’t have a reservation but still want to try chef Eric Ripert’s famous seafood preparations, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant does allow the occasional walk-in. And if that doesn’t work, you can always try to grab a seat in the more casual bar area, which serves the whole menu.
