Situated on the 48th floor of the Marriott Marquis Hotel, New York’s only revolving restaurant is as much a draw for the view, as it is for the food. Boasting 360 panoramas that take in everything from Carnegie Tower, to the Empire State Building, you can also see for a hundred miles beyond on a really clear day. The View is rather conservatively decorated with modern sofas and low-lying tables, coupled with bleached blond wooden dining amenities, but this is perhaps so as not to detract from the uncompromising views across the best of New York. Dinner appetizers range from sumptuous grilled quail in an apricot compote, to lobster bisque with caramelized fennel, while entrees deserve thorough perusal since there are so many to choose from. Top off your trip with a salacious slice of New York’s Finest Cheesecake, or Chocolate Spiral Panacotta.
