Riding the Marriott’s elevator leading to the Monarch Rooftop Lounge, located on West 35th Street, is tantamount to ascending to bar terrace heaven. Patrons can sink into sumptuous couches, sip creative cocktails, and enjoy tasty well-presented food while gazing at the best Empire State Building view in the world.
From chips and the best guacamole ever to fruit and yogurt, dips (and their relevant to-be-dipped accompaniments) are not only fun to eat (hello, adult finger foods!) but also make for the perfect party eats.
Located just around the corner from Herald Square, the rooftop and lounge at Monarch offers expansive views of all of midtown, including a direct shot at the Empire State. With a cocktail and brunch menu to (almost) contend the stunning views, the overall ambiance at Monarch Rooftop and Lounge simply can’t be beat.
This is a very straight forward dessert from Executive Chef Daniel Billheimer of Monarch Rooftop Lounge perfect for any time of the year. The notes of sweet are perfectly balanced with the right amount of acid from the keylime, and the handmade graham cracker crust lends an authenticity and depth that really pulls the whole piece together. One bite from this old world Florida classic will put you on the beach with the sun on your face.
