The Roof at Viceroy Central Park has two great uses. First off, it’s perfect for when you need to impress a couple of tourists with a very nice view of Central Park. It’s also a great spot for when you want to get a drink after work, can somehow charge that drink to your company, and would like to sit outside. There’s a relatively casual patio with some couches and a couple of tables, and if you get cold, you can go drink in the little indoor area that feels kind of like an old yacht.

Radiance Tea House
Radiance Tea House is a great little place to get some grub, drink a pot of tea, and maybe peruse a text about Buddhism. We find ourselves in here from time to time to do exactly that – except for the Buddhism part.
Hidden behind red velvet curtains inside Midtown's Le Parker Meridien hotel, this staged hole in the wall with eternal lines has NYC's best burger.
Everything at Kingside is overpriced and underwhelming. Spare yourself and only go if you feel like checking out the beehive of glammed-up female and single rich dude activity.

The Penrose is one of several Upper East Side restaurants that are making this neighborhood sort of cool again. Sort of.
Bonnie's Grill is a great neighborhood spot with a full menu of divey bar food classics. However, we still need better options for wings in the city, and Bonnie's doesn't quite make the cut.
Suggested by our writers
Westlight is the cocktail bar and restaurant on top of the William Vale hotel in Williamsburg.
Mr. Purple is the restaurant/bar on top of Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side. It’s a good place to grab a drink with a group, but it does get busy.
Pod 39 Rooftop Bar
The Pod 39 Rooftop Bar is a great place to grab an outdoor drink in Murray Hill. Although if you go on a weekend, expect crowds.
