If you’re craving Le Bernardin’s crispy black bass with lop cheong sausage, it’s best to call the seafood restaurant directly to make a reservation. You can also use OpenTable to book online. Reservations are highly recommended at the New York restaurant, as it proves popular for both lunch and dinner.
If you didn’t plan ahead, Le Bernardin does occasionally have room for walk-ins, but don’t count on getting a table. A better bet is settling down in the more casual bar area, which serves the full menu of French, Asian and other internationally influenced seafood. Led by chef-partner Eric Ripert, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant is one of the top spots in New York.
