Welcome to the Rainbow Room.
It is an iconic New York City landmark where you can experience world class dining and entertaining 65 stories above Rockefeller Center. I wasn’t quite sure what we were getting in to when we made these fancy reservations one Sunday for brunch, but boy am I thankful that we got to experience it. Needless to say, it may or may not be the only time that we will have the honor to dine there because the price tag isn’t for the faint of heart! BUT I must say that it was worth every single penny and I left feeling like I was wined and dined like royalty. They had stations upon stations of the most delicious food, a whole freshly pressed juice and smoothie bar, an entire corner dedicated to just desserts, and there was a menu that you could specially order from. I haven’t even gotten to the best part – it was completely unlimited! And the second best part? That view. Oh, don’t even get me started on how beautiful that view of New York City was.
My first stop was the crepe station. If there was one thing that I FOR SURE wanted to get in to my belly, it was going to be that Nutella crepe. From there I took a crack at the buffet (I must have gone up and filled my plate at least twice). Followed by that was a special lobster eggs benedict that I ordered from the kitchen – it was one of the most decadent things I have ever eaten. And lastly, I ended with a platter of sweets from the desserts table (yes a platter – because I can never decide on just one dessert)! Needless to say, we all left there absolutely stuffed. I was honestly so stuffed once it hit bottom that I had to get off of the subway on our way home because I wasn’t feeling too hot haha.
Looking back at these photos makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. This is definitely one of my favorite memories made since living in the city. Zach always makes fun of me because I tend to spend a lot of my time taking pictures so that I can capture every single special moment (including this one). The reason that he pokes fun of me though is because all of these pictures never really see the light of day. That is the case with these as they were taken almost a year ago today! It is so fun to look back at these memories, but also so crazy to see how much has changed in a year. Zach’s parents were in town for a long weekend and we decided to splurge on a fancy brunch to celebrate. Sally’s birthday was soon approaching, I had just made my big move to NYC, and in a few days I was about to start my new job! A lot has happened since this moment, and so many more special memories have been made. I can’t wait to see what this year in NYC brings. Maybe by the end of it, Zach and I will be able to treat his parents to another brunch at the Rainbow Room :)
