How late is too late for dinner in Manhattan?

PerfectPalate | Apr 11, 2012 10:15 PM

Hi. Making restaurant bookings for places like EMP, Per Se, Le Bernadine etc I can only seem to get in at say 10 or 1015. How late is too late in NY at places like this for dinner? Also, when do these places 'wind down' for the evening? Does service fall off and / or the restaurant become mostly empty? When is the dining 'vibe' still happening until in such places? I would do lunches at these - but want to keep the days free for sites, shopping and more casual meals.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
