Any roof top restaurants in NYC?
Check out Terrace in the Sky (www.terraceinthesky.com) on the Columbia campus; extraordinary views and very decent offereings. Less fancy is Sosa Borella (www.sosaborella.com) which is Argentinean/Italian. After the theater starts, it can be v pleasant and affordable (esp the SA wine offerings). BTW E's rec on Pampano is seconded here; great food and v nice view; not a rooftop, though.

I went with friends to the rooftop bar at 230 Fifth for our last night in NY in June. Beautiful evening, gorgeous views -- OK drinks and bar food. Nothing offensive, but nothing memorable either. Great if rooftop/views is worth a lot more to you than what you eat or drink.
