Lunch at the Lakeside (Boathouse) restaurant in Central Park

Jump to last reply

Myself and a friend will be visiting NYC for a few days – depart day will be Tuesday, September 9. We're meeting up with a couple friends from Australia for lunch before my friend and I head to the airport. We'll be flying from JFK – flight departure 3:59 pm.

I was thinking to reserve at the Lakeside Restaurant (because of the iconic setting) but they don't open until noon on Tuesdays. Can anyone offer advice regarding the following:

Would a reservation at noon give us enough time for a pleasant lunch and to still get to JFK in time – I expect we should be there around 3?

Will it be easy to hail a cab to take us to JFK at that time/location in the day?

Will they allow us to take a suitcase each into the restaurant (I've emailed the restaurant but have not heard back) to save the time in returning to our hotel?

Or – should we look at eating closer to our hotel (Salisbury, 7th and 57th)?

Many thanks for any suggestions.
