Authentic Italian With Live Piano Music Before The Best View Of the Empire State Building
As if decadent, authentic Northern Italian recipes perfected by years of family tradition isn’t enough to lure you in, add a nightly pianist plus a Trio Romantico, and you should be perfectly seduced. Rossini’s is a charming staple of Murray Hill that’s been in the business for over 30 years, with heartwarming service and ultra-satisfying pasta, fish, and veal Italian favorites made with seasoned expertise and gusto. This lovely, old-world dining experience will have you pick from classics like crispy calamari fritti, ravioli alla vodka, pollo alla francesce, and tortellini alla rossini, to name a few—after, of course, you’ve had your fill of complimentary bread and bruschetta.
If you thought you’d fully appreciated the Empire State Building in all of its glory, think again, ‘cause it doesn’t get any more glorious than the up close and personal view you and your love will get while you sip drinks at Spyglass Rooftop Bar. This luxe, elegant bar sits atop the Archer Hotel and really shines with its graceful 1950s decor, plush purple seats, and delicate cocktails, along with the space for intimacy and conversation. Best of all? It’s never crowded, even on the weekends.
