My Favorite Things – A Luncheon in the Clouds

Yesterday I caught up with a good friend over lunch.  She suggested we meet at Robert, the ninth floor restaurant in Columbus Circle’s Museum of Arts and Design.

If you’re hurrying by the sleek facade of the Museum of Arts and Design, you could easily overlook this gem.

But if you’ve got good eyesight (or a zoom lens!) you’ll notice that that this restaurant on the southwest corner of Central Park has an incredible vantage point.

 The menu is cheery and straight forward…

With clean and fresh flavors that are matched by the airy and light ambiance.

(And loved every bite!)

Tables by the window are booked weeks in advance…

But even if you can’t nab one of those, you’ll still be guaranteed a great view!

    • It was, Susan! I’d only been to Robert once before (for drinks at night) but both times have been very memorable.

      Hope you are doing great! 🙂 Joana
