New York City : Spectacular Views and Good Food Go Hand in Hand This Summer


NYC & Company, New York City’s marketing, tourism and partnership organization, is touting a new trend in town this summer: high-altitude brunches. From Manhattan to Brooklyn to Queens, rooftops are catering to people seeking more than just a meal. In the vertical city of New York, good food and good views go hand in hand. From 230 Fifth, Hudson Terrace and the Gansevoort in Manhattan to the Ravel in Queens and Alma in Brooklyn, the City offers some excellent options for those lazy summer weekends.

“This summer, visitors and residents can retreat to the rooftops to not only take in spectacular views of our City from many different vantage points, but also enjoy some excellent food and drink,” said George Fertitta, CEO of NYC & Company.

Manhattan’s largest rooftop bar, 230 Fifth, offers its Champagne Party Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 5pm year-round, rain or shine, on its 14,000-square-foot palm-decorated roof deck and 8,000-square-foot fully enclosed lounge.

More than 40 dishes are offered, the majority priced between $8 and $12, including such signatures as “Liquored Up” French toast and matzah brei. Along with a number of specialty cocktails, six champagnes are served by the bottle and the magnum. “Bigger is better” is the theme at this rooftop retreat, which offers stunning views of New York City including head-on views of the Empire State Building.
