On the first day of our trip, we'll arrive at JFK around 11:30, drop our things at the hotel near WTC, have a nice meal at one of the restaurants nearby that Chowhounds helpfully suggested earlier, and head to the UN for a tour.
After that, we will want to unwind, probably in a place that feels really "special" and it would be lovely if it had a great view. I'm thinking of a rooftop bar with good tapas or a dinner menu, and staying to watch the sunset.
The Met rooftop, unfortunately, will close around 4:00 that day, so no sunset there for us. Rare View at Fashion 26 looks good, as do the Grill and Pool Bar at Hotel Americano.
Can anyone here comment on the food at either of those places, and whether well-behaved tweens fit in comfortably there?
