  1. The Sea Grill, more upscale than Rock Center Cafe, is on the other side of the skating rink.

    1. If you're looking for the tree views, Brasserie Ruhlmann and Morrell's Wine Bar.

      There is also a small variety deli type restaurant that faces the tree - City 75. They have a sit-down place upstairs that serves dinner.

      1. a tree view is exactly what i'm looking for. any more suggestions?

          Other than a tree view, what exactly are you looking for?

          1. re: RGR

            Thats it, just a place that has a nice view of the tree

        2. Havn't tried it but there is a restaurant inside Saks 5th Ave that has great views of Rock center

          1. brian, please update us on whether you could make it into any of the places mentioned for the tree-lighting ceremony.

            1. I decided not to find a place around there since the sea grill and rock center are not taking reservations until like February. the saks cafe closes at 5pm on the weekdays. going to dine somewhere else and then check the tree and windows out.

              thanks for the suggestions though!
