Am heading in on December 30th and out on January 3rd. So far I have no reservations anywhere but I'll have a car. I'll stay at NYNY on a comp. I usually don't make reservations (except when I went to e). Here's the question:- Am I going to be really screwed if I don't make reservations pronto (especially for New Year's eve)? The kind of places I'll be going to include Lotus, Raku, Bar Forte - definitely a tilt towards Asian but I might also give CUT a try (or go cheap at Charlie Palmer's).
