Contemporary American | Meatpacking District, Manhattan

Great spot for date night! Parking is great, food is amazing, staff go above and beyond to ensure that you are happy, and the drinks are amazing also. We visited on a very overcast day, but still wanted to experience the rooftop and the staff ensured that we did just that. As soon as we were ready to move inside we transitioned smoothly to a table inside where we still had a nice view of the city. More

American | Rockefeller Center Midtown, Manhattan

I chose Morrell for its proximity to the Laura Pels theater and because I was looking for somewhere I thought would be reasonably fast and where we could try and share several small plates. Morrell lived up to all those expectations. Luckily, it was a nice evening so we were able to eat outside, which was very pleasant since the restaurant is in the middle of Rockefeller Center and not on a main street. We had a very nice, light meal and excellent wine. The dessert was a little slow to come out - we had to ask for it - otherwise the service was attentive. Not cheap, but I would go back, particularly on a nice evening. More
