It’s quite possible the scene at this 8,000-square-foot rooftop restaurant and bar almost overshadows the cocktails. This hotspot, flaunting a gunmetal bar, square planters, and groups of PYTs, is more in spirit with glamorous Miami or L.A., than the TL. To look the part, we say accessorize on-site with a cocktail in hand. We like the Patty Hearst, orange vodka, rose jam, and lemon juice, billed as a drink that will “hold your taste buds hostage.” If you’re planning to buy your own cocktails, make sure you bring a wad of bills. It’s a cash-only bar. Sunday brunch is low key, but come evening beware the lines that go around the corner.
