After Aladdin, I went to the Marriott Marquis for the fancy birthday dinner of this cool person I know. It was the only thing he wanted for his dinner. So, off we went!
It’s billed as “New York’s Only Revolving Rooftop Restaurant.” I haven’t fact-checked that. But I’ll go ahead and believe it!
It was very cool. The people were nice. The waiter was lovely. The food was amaaaaaazing. Totally worth the whole snazzy expensive thing.
I’m not a super huge dessert person (though I guess as I look at my own behavior, perhaps I’m becoming one now, trying various ice cream shops and vegan cupcakes and such? …Who knows… But aaaaaanyway…)…
I don’t *feel* like a super huge dessert person. But alas! Dessert came in the 3-course pre-fixe, so it’s like, we are doing this!
And I tried the Strawberry Shortcake, and it was amazing.
Everything was A+.
As far as the actual view…
The inside of the hotel was gorgeous. And going up and down in the elevator was super fun and pretty. And the view is pretty cool… Buuuut… When you’re *right* above Times Square, you can’t really see Times Square… which, to me, is the funnest (not a word, I don’t think – but using it anyway)… the funnest part of being in Times Square!
It was still amazingly cool. It’s just something to be aware of, if you go.
We also sat right by this huge wall mirror, and it was funny because as the restaurant rotated the lights in the ceiling would be in front of, then behind the mirror. So, it would weirdly get dark and light throughout the night – which we thought was hilarious.
It was a lovely night, with lovely food, and lovely company.
(But if you wanna see Times Square, consider going to the Olive Garden – which is where I’m kinda hoping to go for my birthday. 😉
