Cocktails and small plates at Monarch Rooftop Lounge

Best Dish: The flatbread was absolutely delicious. The dollop of marscapone was a sweet surprise and paired well with the light balsamic drizzle and prosciutto.

Overall: Monarch is an impressive space and an ideal venue for a first date. The cozy seating, soft lighting and relaxed atmosphere will melt away the first date jitters easily. The space is also great for entertaining out of town guests, the view coupled with the decor will leave your visitors speechless.

The winner of the contest will win tickets to watch The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from Monarch’s attractive perch above midtown, Macy’s and the parade route.
