My family of 4 will be travelling from Australia to NYC in December/Jan. I'd like to be organised for New Years eve, but I'm not havnig any luck. I'm not interested in Times Sq, but would like to book a lovely dinner. Our favourites such as Jean-Georges simply say to book 30 days out. I am worried the world will be trying to book 30 days out from New Years. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Has the River Cafe re-opened? I can't tell from the web site.
