New York City's Top Rooftop Restaurants

New York City has long been dubbed the concrete jungle, its tall skyscrapers and flashy lights around every corner. Though in high pockets of these streets, there are rooftop gardens that the urban habitants can escape to, all while enjoying the view below them.

This is the largest outdoor rooftop garden in New York, offering an indoor penthouse and an outdoor roof-deck. Enormous yellow umbrellas are available over the tables in the summer, and in the colder months, heated lamps and plastic domes cover the tables and offer partial warmth. 230 Fifth offers classic American food and their specialty cocktails uses in season fruits and vegetables.

Located at 230 5th Ave, New York, NY 10001

Located above Pod 39 Hotel, stare out between the terra-cotta columns and this rooftop’s view line covers the south to lower Manhattan skyline. Strings of light cover the expansive space above the rooftop and patches of greenery line the brick walls, giving off a feeling of an Italian garden. Tapas and cocktails are their specialty.

Located at 145 E 39th St, New York, NY 10016

Just south of Hell’s Kitchen is Gallow Green, a lusciously memorizing space atop Chelsea’s McKittrick Hotel. The greenery is lined with twinkling lights and the herbs they grow are used in dishes from the meals. Gallow Green offers an abundance of seafood in their appetizers and mains and flavourful pizza, such as their Kale and Anchovy pizza.
