The most important aspect is the food. I don't want to spend $$$$ on just a view or ambiance. I want an experience! That means food has to be just as spectacular if not better than the view. I'd rather dine in Manhattan (doesn't really matter which neighborhood) because the day I want to do this, I have other things planned. I don't care if it's touristy or pricey or fully booked for a while, I can deal with all that. So basically anyone know where I can get excellent sustenance with an awesome view? If anyone could recommend an al fresco, roof top restaurant that would be best.
