The Essential New York It was 80 years ago that Where magazine was launched, and to celebrate, I thought it would be fun to pick a famous city venue you can visit in just about 80 minutes. I decided on Grand Central Terminal, for good reason. The 1913 Beaux Arts complex is much more than a railway station. From its controversial celestial ceiling with the zodiac sequence reversed to almost losing its landmark designation in 1975 until Jackie Kennedy Onassis intervened, the stately structure has a history crammed with enough drama to rival this year’s presidential election.

With a fellow traveler, descend to the lower concourse. Standing at opposite ends of two of the four archways outside the Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant, one of you face the wall and then say something, while the other listens—and hears perfectly. Welcome to the

Whispering Gallery! Now, walk upstairs and admire the four-faced clock in the middle of the main concourse. The clock, made of precious opal and valued between $10 and $20 million, not only has appeared in iconic films (“The Godfather”) but also has been witness to many a marriage

Does something look amiss? It was designed to be viewed by the gods above, not us mortals below. Hence, what you see is a stunning replica of the constellations—in reverse.

In our town, dinner is not a meal, it’s an event. And the restaurants that wrap a spectacular vista around their dining experiences are most special. Here are our favorites.—Karen Tina Harrison

w Robert restaurant sits atop the Museum of Arts & Design at Columbus Circle.


ven longtime New Yorkers love the sight of the city’s celebrated, ever-changing skyline. A true superstar, Manhattan’s picture-perfect panorama looks good from any angle, and never gets old. But it’s at its most memorable when ogled from a table for two (or three or four) with a view. What you see out the windows of these restaurants is most definitely swoon-worthy. New York proffers just one revolving restaurant with a


360º vista, and it’s such a landmark that its name is simply The View Restaurant & Lounge. From a bird’s-eye perch 48 stories above the Great White Way, The View’s swank circular dining room presents thrilling vistas at every turn: its electric Times Square surroundings, Central Park, the Hudson River and the shores of northern New Jersey. Menu options are as plentiful as photo ops: a three-course prix fixe of seasonal American classics, Sunday brunch or deluxe buffet that includes dessert. The View rotates one complete revolution hourly. You may consider it a complete revelation. New York Marriott Marquis hotel, 1535 Broadway, 212.704.8900, Since unfurling in 1934 in the new Rockefeller Center atop the skyscraper also known as 30 Rock, the Rainbow Room has become synonymous with Art Deco glamour. Now a designated New York City landmark, the recently restored

Rainbow Room finesses Manhattan’s most majestic—and altitudinous—Sunday brunch, with live musicians and deluxe dishes like lobster Benedict. Its views command 270º of the Apple: uptown, downtown and east. The Rainbow Room’s weeknight cocktail lounge, Bar SixtyFive, looks up, down and west. You, meanwhile, won’t be able to look away. 30 Rockefeller Plz., 212.632.5000, Down at sea level, the Rockefeller Center Rink and towering Christmas Tree, which is lit Nov. 30, frame a beloved scene of comfort and joy. Diners at The Sea Grill savor a rinkside view of this seasonal spectacle from a sleek, glass-walled dining room. The splendid kitchen crew treats ultra-fresh fish and seafood with reverence, creating not just impeccable grilled dishes but a raw bar, sushi, scampi, bouillabaisse, paella and, if you must, filet mignon. Prix fixe menus, including one for sophisticated small fry, are prize catches for frugal fish fanciers. 19 W. 49th St., 212.332.7610, At the top of the Museum of Arts & Design in a building with a glazed terra-cotta and fitted-glass facade, Robert is as stylish as the scene it beholds. The art-filled restaurant lords it over Columbus Circle, the monument-laden southwestern corner of Central Park, which is framed like a painting by W. 59th St., Broadway and Central Park West.

pion of Food Network’s “Chopped,” serves her captivatingly earthy dishes at lunch, dinner, happy hour and weekend brunch, often with live jazz on tap. Your senses will rejoice. 2 Columbus Cir., 212.299.7730, A stirring cinematic setting beside the Brooklyn Bridge is one reason why The River Café has remained a romantic dining destination for 39 years. Its breathtaking views (ideal for selfies) command the East River, Manhattan’s and Brooklyn’s skylines, the Freedom Tower and the Statue of Liberty … for starters. Yet The River Café’s kitchen is equally glorious. Foodies consider this riverside patch of Kings County the birthplace of modern American cuisine and the culinary cradle where influential chefs such as Larry Forgione, David Burke and Charlie Palmer were launched. The River Café works hard to maintain its legend, furnishing sumptuous prix fixe menus for brunch, lunch and dinner; an à la carte breakfast; and inconspicuous waiterly assistance for eager gents on bended knee with ring in hand. 1 Water St., Brooklyn, 718.522.5200, It’s fitting that the restaurant founded by the NBA’s supernova occupies an equally stellar setting. Michael Jordan’s The Steak House N.Y.C. inhabits a semiprivate alcove within New York’s treasured Grand Central Terminal. Overhead is the celebrated fresco of the constellations, and below is a mesmerizing urban ballet (including a recent wedding proposal that took place on that main concourse, in viewing distance of the restaurant). It’s also fitting that the restaurant over-delivers the way Michael did. It’s one of New York’s great steak houses, serving delectable dryaged beef, luscious local seafood, NBA-tall layer cake and a notable wine list, all which is a slam dunk for diners. Grand Central Terminal, Vanderbilt Ave. at E. 42nd St., 212.655.2300,

Shrines to Dining Some New York restaurants take their mission so reverently, they resemble sacred spaces. These soulful dining rooms make you feel like you’re in a place of worship.—Karen Tina Harrison Junoon means “passionate” or “possessed” in Hindi, and you’ll sense that immediately upon walking into this restaurant, where the entrance is lined with lustrous black South Indian limestone carved into an undulating weave pattern. Next, admire a series of 200-year-old hand-carved wooden arches that set off private dining rooms. Junoon’s centerpiece is a 50-foot reflecting pool with 8-foot-tall blocks of carved pink kota stone from Rajasthan. 27 W. 24th St., 212.490.2100, newyork Jue Lan Club is a sultry eatery for those who venerate Chinese food. And it is hallowed ground for devotees of the disco era of the 1970s. The restaurant is set in the shadowy chambers of the Limelight, one of the disco epoch’s reigning nightclubs. The era’s indefatigable clubgoers are memorialized in a wall of edgy snapshots. There is also a wall of Budda heads in the bar. Jue Lan’s spiritual connection runs deep. Its landmarked 1845 Gothic Revival structure was constructed as the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion. 49 W. 20th St., 646.524.7409,

The Park Avenue location of Wolfgang’s Steakhouse has a cathedral-like ceiling that seems to watch over you (and your ultimate New York strip or porterhouse for two). This celestial spell is set by ravishing blueglazed terra-cotta arches designed by Spanish architect Rafael Guastavino. Wolfgang’s premises were originally the opulent Vanderbilt Hotel, built in 1912. You can see more Guastavino arches in Grand Central Terminal’s lower level, part of the “whispering gallery” near the Oyster Bar & Restaurant. 4 Park Ave., 212.889.3369, wolf To New York gourmets, Betony is the culinary sanctuary of kitchen magician Bryce Shuman and general manager Eamon Rockey. But Betony looks as sublime as it tastes. Its design commingles modern and antique touches to create an enchanting look. Effusive greenery and a windowed wall overlooking W. 57th St. recall a vintage greenhouse. And Betony’s soaring proportions and ornately carved walls and ceilings channel the Mayan temple of Uxmal in Mexico’s Yucatan. 41 W. 57th St., 212.465.2400,

good eats

Deli for Your Belly Visiting a Jewish deli in our town is about as New Yorky as you can get: From slightly surly waiters to starters of pickles and coleslaw, you haven’t done the Big Apple to the core if you haven’t had the deli experience.—Lois Levine Meg Ryan was right to be moaning over her sandwich in “When Harry Met Sally.” My faves from this 128-year-old institution are the crispy-skinned hot dog and the pastrami on rye (slathered with mustard). Pure and beautiful. 205 E. Houston St., 212.254.2246, katzs

 SARGE’s Abe “Sarge” Katz opened his deli in 1964, and ever since, the restaurant has been showcasing its matzo ball soup, sandwiches (corned beef, pastrami, chopped liver) and strawberry cheesecake. 548 Third Ave., 212.679.0442,

 CARNEGIE DELI True story: I was getting a facial on the Jersey Shore, two hours from NYC, when suddenly my aesthetician lamented, “I can’t believe the Carnegie Deli is closing! [Dec. 31].” From the briny, fat sour pickles to the oversize blintzes, Carnegie Deli will be sorely missed. 854 Seventh Ave., 212.757.2245,

 BARNEY GREENGRASS Another old-timer (since 1908), “the sturgeon king” is known for its classic Jewish delicacies, from whitefish salad to pickled herring in cream sauce (if you’ve never had it, you must). 541 Amsterdarm Ave., 212.724.4707, barneygreen

THANKSgIVING FEASTS! You may be away from home this Thanksgiving (Nov. 24), but that doesn’t mean you can’t eat till you are stuffed to the gills (just like at Aunt Mary’s). Reservations are required at the following restaurants.—Lorraine Rubio • Duet Brasserie In a romantic, bi-level space with whitewashed brick walls and gilt-edged mirrors, guests have their choice of Thanksgiving specials, such as turkey wings and rack of venison, or à la carte items from an eclectic menu, such as Maryland crab fritters. 37 Barrow St., 212.255.5416,

• Marc Forgione This intimate dining room, lit by candles, is the setting for a three-course feast including traditional dishes with seasonal ingredients, such as truffle butter, mustard seeds and root vegetables. 134 Reade St., 212.941.9401,

• Daniel A slice of Sarge’s strawberry cheesecake.

Foodies savor a three-course menu of elegant classics at this Michelin-starred resto. Thanksgiving dishes include

organic turkey with wild cranberry, Honeycrisp apple, sweet potato “duchess,” caramelized chestnut and sage gravy. 60 E. 65th St., 212.288.0033,

• LANdmarc Brunchgoers nosh from a Thanksgiving buffet in a glass-walled dining room above Columbus Circle while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Items include staples (carved roast turkey) and breakfast mainstays (omelets and maple bacon). 10 Columbus Cir., 212.823.6123,

It is no secret that Manhattan Island boasts some of the world’s grandest museums, but what is less known is that many of these art repositories also house gift shops, prompting great ideas for holiday items, home design and more.–Lois Levine

New York Your Way Unique travel recommendations, fit to match your personal style.

Art Lovers



For colorful works by postwar Japanese, American and Western European artists, you’ll want to visit (1) Fergus McCaffrey, which represents painters such as North Carolinaborn Jack Early (“1962,” above). At (2) Printed Matter, it’s all about art: This nonprofit bookstore/gallery showcases books, magazines, posters and more, all created by artists. The (3) Guggenheim Museum, a “museum of non-objective painting,” according to its mandate, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1959; artist Hilla von Rebay called it a “temple of the spirit.”

Dramatic to look at, and thrilling to ride up in: (1) One World Observatory, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, offers views to the east, west, north and south of Manhattan Island, all from the 100th floor. Novelist Isaac Asimov, actor Bela Lugosi and 12 million other immigrants anxious for a new life in the New World began at the (2) Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration. Dinosaur fossils, the Hall of Birds and the 2-billion-year-old Star of India are just some of the paleoprecious findings at the (3) American Museum of Natural History.

In an elegant space with vaulted ceilings, (1) Scalini Fedeli consistently wows enthusiastic eaters with its Northern Italian fare, prompting one recent diner to rave, “The best food ever. The best service ever. What more can I say?” At the David Bouley/Tsuji Culinary Institute collaboration (2) Brushstroke, the “works of art” include exquisitely prepared kaiseki dinners (tasting menus) that change seasonally. Since 1962, (3) Sylvia’s Restaurant has been creating classic soulful fixings, such as chitterlings, smothered pork chops and collard greens.
