Our plane will arrive in New York on a Tuesday (either EWR or LGA) at about 11:00 or a little before, we should be to the hotel by noon, check in and then we will have lunch. Of course, there is the traffic factor, so I'm not sure exactly for what time I would make reservations. What if I make them for 1:00 but arrive at the restaurant at 12:30? Or should I just show up and hope they give me a table? I don't want to be rude and make reservations and then miss them due to traffic or other unforeseen events. Maybe I'm overthinking this, but what can I say. Try as I may, I can't run from who I am. Thanks.
