The Blue Rooftop: For Fig Margaritas and Shrimp Ceviche in the Sky
Got a solid new rooftop option for you today.
One perched atop a NoMad hotel, ready to usher in your August evenings with fresh fig-honey margaritas and Mediterranean mezze…
All eyes on The Blue Rooftop: a two-tiered situation twenty floors up inside of Marmara Park Avenue, open right as you’re reading these very words.
Come by sometime you’re in need of a stiff drink and a platter of hummus a few steps from the Empire State Building. It’s an intimate, bi-level sort of space, and we’d suggest claiming some of the plush purple banquettes on the upper level—where you can simultaneously sip Mediterranean martinis (served with a side of Turkish olives) and peer downtown. If you’re the type to order frosé (no judgment here), know that their Penthouse Frosé is a mix of vodka and fresh strawberry syrup, then topped with Turkish Delight, a popular candy found in Turkey.
Should hunger strike, order any combination of smoked eggplant salad with roasted bell pepper, shrimp ceviche topped with avocado and jalapeño, and watermelon with seasonal berries and feta cheese. Full menu: right here.
