Columbus Circle from the Lobby Lounge at the Mandarin Oriental

Thirty-five-odd floors above Columbus Circle sits Asiate, which uses Asian ingredients to tweak American classics. A recent breakfast featured stormy skies, a decidedly un-Asian Belgian waffle, and a full Japanese spread, including a light omelette, seared salmon, miso soup, tofu, mountain potatoes, packaged nori, and rice. Fancy food in a fancy restaurant at which you're paying for great views, great service, and great flavors? Yes, please.

We love this place. Especially for lunch, where it's suuuuuper cheap. Never seen anything as American . . . er, Belgian . . . as a waffle there, though.
