Above Restaurant Review

: Located 202 feet above Times Square, hence the name, Above offers a spot of tranquility without pretension. Décor, including high ceilings and marble, is modern and in good taste. The large windows overlook Theater Row and its neon. With a revamped menu veering toward contemporary bistro fare, Above caters to a range of diners; it’s family-friendly and also a good place for a romantic date. Dishes are mostly Euro-American classics, with salads a perennial favorite, along with steak frites, a Maine lobster roll, and crispy mac 'n' cheese. Breakfast is just a classic, and just as good. The wine list is strong on California selections and offers many half-bottles. Waitstaff is helpful and smiling.
