      Any place you'd recommend that has a great view with good food for lunch tomorrow?

        Isn't this where one orders a Buddhist hot dog? ("make me one with everything")

        Food is ok, but not great and absolutely out of line with the prices charged. Some menu items were just laughable - was it the garlic naan or the safron rice that was $12? I forget, but you get the point.

        You would be paying for the view at Nirvana, which overlooks Central Park, but doesn't quite justify the prices. If you want good food with a view, try Wild Blue in the World Trade Center (caveat: I haven't been there since it opened in '99).

          Good view, fair pricey food.
          As we say in New York, forgetaboutit.

          Although I haven’t been there for a long time check out Terrace in the Sky. Located at 400 West 119th Street this beautiful romantic rooftop restaurant has a view of Upper Manhattan and the Bronx. You can see the George Washington Bridge glowing over the mighty Hudson River. The food and service was excellent and it is expensive. There is a special place in my heart for this place as I asked my wife to marry me in that wonderful place. Anybody been there recently, I have an anniversary coming up. Thanks…LOU
