Among the lowest of these rooftop restaurants, The Fulton still has one of the largest views. See the sparkling East River, two bridge tableau, and the coast of Brooklyn across the way. The waterside spot’s menu is seafood forward, but broad enough to satisfy a preference for land preparations.
New York has plenty of places to look at stuff. Our museums are marvelous, our streets are superb, our new skyscrapers are nail-biting and even our subway has things to see. But none of the above offer food and drinks with a view like our city’s rooftop restaurants. So ready your Instagram filters and set your cocktail-sipping smile—these spots are your ticket to the top.
