Locals and travelers can’t help but feel that New York charm while gazing off at the panoramic views of the skyline. Order a Manhattan and one of the many delicious small plates by Chef Jonathan Wright. A stunning space, delicious food, and did we mention the view?
Chef Jonathan Wright’s Neighborhood favorites:
“Grand Central Oyster Bar is one of my favorite places to go with or without a group of friends, it's great for grazing on oysters from near and far and offers a good variety of fresh seafood. I sometimes take away a fried oyster or shrimp Po Boy for the ride home. Also, I like seeing familiar faces behind the counter, guys who have been there for years and actually remember repeat customers.”

Partner/Sommelier Aldo Sohm’s neighborhood favorites:
"Some of my regular and favorite go-tos in the neighborhood include Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill at Columbus Circle, The Bar Room at the Modern if it’s still open, and Ardesia Wine Bar on 52nd street. I usually skip wine late after work and have a beer instead!"
