Robert, New York, NY

Robert Restaurant Review

: Midtown’s Robert offers fantastic city views from its perch above Central Park and location on the ninth floor of the Museum of Arts & Design. Fresh American cuisine is presented in a modern, color-dappled room with artsy touches including overhead acrylic panels set at various angles. Simple dishes are the strongest choices, such as watercress soup with roasted fennel. Grilled salmon or branzino were fresh if unexciting, with accompaniments including fava beans, fingerling potatoes, white asparagus or morels. Homemade cinnamon-dusted bombolini, served with three dipping sauces, is a lush, sweet ending. Ask for a north-facing window seat so you can survey busy Columbus Circle as well as stare over the treetops to the tony apartment buildings rimming the park. Your meal check allows you discounted entry into the museum and reduced prices in the gift store.
