Betony this Thursday

ajh05004 | Dec 1, 201404:25 PM     27

I was just called up to Manhattan for a last minute meeting Friday AM, so I'm looking for a spot to dine solo on Thursday night. Based on recent reviews Betony seems like a solid choice. My flight gets into JFK around 4, and Betony's only reservation for a party of 1 is 5:45. Would I have any issues walking in and sitting at the bar after dropping my bags at the hotel? Thinking around 7 would be realistic. If not I'll just head straight to the restaurant, or if anyone has other suggestions for restaurants of similar quality I'm open to them. Also looking for a good beer or cocktail bar for a nightcap. I'll be staying right by Grand Central, but am willing to travel for some good grub/drinks. Thanks in advance!

Edit: I would also appreciate suggestions on what to order. I have a big appetite , so I was thinking one dish from each section of the menu.
