We hope to spend our first day in NYC (Friday before Memorial Day) having Grimaldi's for lunch, strolling the bridge, a visit to the WTC site, and catch the sunset from the Top of the Rock. We are four adults (me, hubby, mom and dad), and we are staying at the Shelburne Murray Hill 37th @ Lexington. I was thinking of places for dinner after the Top of the Rock (9ish or so), and Keen's was suggested. Rather than a huge giant late meal, I was thinking that the pub might better suit our needs (was even thinking of Sarges Deli in the area as a back up plan, but we are planning on a Katz visit on Sunday).
How difficult will it be to secure a table for four on a Friday night (holiday weekend) in the pub area? Should we consider something else? Jackets aren't required are they?
