Rainbow Room

The 80-year-old venue is back as one of the best places in the city for a meal with a view. The 65th-floor restaurant came alive again in October, resurrecting its Monday dinner and dancing while adding Sunday brunch. The adjacent bar, SixtyFive, has a terrace. At 30 Rockefeller Center, 65th fl.; 212-632-5000; rainbowroom.com.
