Inside the Restaurants Atop One World Trade, Where the View Is Insane If You're Willing to Pay

New, 1 comment

There's a cafe, bar, and restaurant, in case the 47 second trip to the top leaves you hungry.

Come Friday, New Yorkers and lots tourists will be able to shoot up to the top of One World Trade in Jetson-style super fast elevators called Sky Pods. For those who are hungry from the 47 second trip up 101 stories, or simply want to eat at the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, there are a few dining options from Legends Hospitality, the people who oversee the concession stands at Yankee Stadium. For a while there, it looked Danny Meyer was going to seal the deal for these spots, but that never came to fruition. Instead, Legends installed the uninspired sounding One Cafe which will sell baked goods, soups, salads, and sandwiches, and bar called One Mix that will serve "distinctive small plates inspired by the five boroughs, for an authentic taste of New York," whatever that means. There's also a fine dining restaurant called One Dine, with "seasonally inspired menu" and "first-class service." The bar might be a little reminiscent of a nice spot to grab a drink in an airport, but hey, it's got that killer view. If you do have your heart set on dining at the top of the world, try not to be as enraged as Steve Cuozzo was by the fact that you'll have to buy a $32 ticket to get in.
