New to the rooftop scene in mid-2021, Somewhere in Nolita is run by the taste-forward group behind popular Thai restaurant Wayan and the nearby Japanese-Italian fusion spot, Kimika. An ideal evening spot for food lovers, this garden-esque bar specializes in seafood with a Southeast Asian twist. Think: A Maine lobster roll with claw meat and nuoc cham drawn butter, and fried whole belly clams with salt and pepper spice. Everything pairs will with a chilled glass of rose, particularly at sunset.
New York City is a rooftop city, year round, regardless of weather. Outdoors, indoors, heated, cuddled in blankets, if it has a view, we’re taking advantage. And because this vertical city is all about looking upward, there’s a constant slew of trend-forward, must-try rooftop bars and restaurants that become our favorite go-tos.
