Finally open again after a two year pause, Manhatta’s downtown views from 60 stories up in the air are as lovely as ever. Its prices have also (for the time being, at least!) dropped. Even at a few bucks under $100, its previous prix fixe menu seemed under market for the place’s fine dining proclivities. But now you can get à la carte items like chips with crème fraiche for $8, oysters for $30 a dozen, lobster rolls ($24), fried chicken ($26) and burgers ($30). Manhatta also just appointed a new executive chef, which portends another menu update in the near future.
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.
