Time Out says

In wintertime, this restaurant looks out on one of the city’s most romantic spots, the skating rink at Rockefeller Center. In the summer, the Rink Bar occupies it—and makes up for the absence of triple axels with $5 drink specials. Given the setting, the food (Italian-inflected American) is better than it needs to be. The chef even surprises tourists with an inspired baked crab cake, made with saffron risotto. Disappointing desserts don’t live up to the view, but you’ll still be the envy of gawkers up above.

I was meeting a client from NBC so this restaurant was suggested due to the location. I was a bit hesitant because I always thought of it as a tourist trap. I was pleasantly surprised that the shrimp salad was really good! I have found myself craving it multiple times since and have suggested this location to colleagues and friends.
