A different kind of "View"

On Sunday night we went to the View restaurant- not the TV show.

The View is a revolving restaurant on one of the top floors of the Marriott Marquis in the middle of Times Square. We arrived at 5:30 and stayed for two hours, so we saw lovely views of the city in the daylight, at dusk and at night. The napkins pictured a map of everything we could see, which included the Chrysler Building and the Hudson River.

But we were there for more than the good views! We celebrated Mom and Dad's upcoming 30th wedding anniversary. I suppose they give Paul and I something to strive for. :-)

We ordered the dinner buffet, which was interesting for more than simply the food. The buffet stayed in place while the part of the floor with the tables circled around it. It seemed that each time we got up we had to walk in a different direction to get to the buffet! The food was pretty good, too. We all especially liked the shrimp, but of course my favorite part was the dessert bar. Who can resist mini-cannolis, bread pudding with vanilla sauce and all the chocolate you want to devour?

All in all, it was an experience I'll be glad to repeat!
