Asiate is in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel at Columbus Circle, on the 35th floor with the most astonishing Manhattan views. The restaurant has an extraordinary tree branch sculpture that hangs from the roof, celebrating and symbolizing the trees outdoors. The restaurant is elegant, sophisticated and stylish, creative and inspiring, with an interesting menu that is as stylish as the decor. Service is gracious, the city panorama is amazing in both the day and the night, and a meal here is something special. The menu includes Hudson Valley foie gras, Arctic Sea Char, and grass-fed Wagyu beef is a celebration of its own, featuring only the best and the freshest ingredients. Make a booking and treat yourselves; it’s beautiful

Alma is in Brooklyn, one of their top restaurants and a real landmark in New York’s restaurant scene. Arrive early to get a seat on the rooftop patio which is open all year and be astonished and amazed at the Manhattan skyline and the Hudson River views. The rooftop is made of glass; it’s perfect. Alma is super popular and if you’ve been to Columbia Street’s restaurant row then you’ll be familiar with it. It is a three store building, busy, bustling, dramatic and loads of fun. You can sit at the ground floor bar or the mid-level dining room where you will still see good views, especially of the cargo-loaders below. Tuesdays are taco night but every night you’ll find tacos, fajitas, burritos, enchiladas, chuletas, and you must be hungry by now! Make your way over, it’s fab.

Gentlemen put on your collared shirts. And ladies, buy a new frock! It’s time to treat yourselves at Bar Sixty Five on the sixty-fifth floor of the Rockefeller Plaza. This is fine dining at its best so take your credit card too. You’ll have the most amazing cocktails created by Sixty Five’s own mixologist and if you get a table, they have the highest outdoor terrace in New York. The views are astonishing. They open at 5 pm, don’t serve anyone under the age of 21 (sorry about that, teens), have the most delicious light bites and an astonishing dinner menu. Book, because Sixty Five is always busy with both locals, businessmen, celebrities and tons of locals.
