View from Asiate

There’s a hurricane heading for the Bahamas and the weather is supposed to get stormy in NYC. Call me crazy but I’m looking forward to a possible weekend of endless rain and wind. Look at those clouds! Open the curtains for a front row view and light the candles, Woody Allen movies all night long. I snapped this photo inside Asiate at the Mandarin Oriental this afternoon. It’s one of the prettiest restaurants in NYC…

…how could you ever tire of this view?

It is indeed spectacular. We’re facing Central Park from the south-west corner. Anyone know what that super tall, skinny building is? I’ll try find out.

P.S. The mountain berry tea I love so much is still on the menu and they added a fall apple cider drink. Stirred with pear nectar and delivered with a cinnamon-sugar rim.

    Your pictures are stunningly beautiful. Really, literally stunning. I did a little double take on seeing them. They're on a different level than your usual.
