PORTER HOUSE New York at TIME WARNER CENTER: Restaurant With a View

This is the panoramic view from the PORTER HOUSE New York at Time Warner Center. I took this when we had brunch at this wonderful restaurant two weeks ago. At the bottom left of the photos is the Trump Tower globe, and in the background is Central Park and Eastside skyline.
About the restaurant from the official website:
With spacious seating for 140, the room is as ample as teh food is in its sense of welcome and luxurious modern casualness. Created by Jeffrey Beers, designer of Daniel Boulud Brasserie at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, Daniel Boulud's DB Bistro Moderne in New York, and Jeffrey Chodorow's Ono at the Hotel Gansevoort, the dining room has been critically praised for its handsome, polished design and panoramic views of Central Park. Dominating the entry is a long, sleekly gleaming cherry wood bar. Deep butter-soft leather banquettes range along the opposite wall with comfortable caféseating in-between. The wide-grained wood floor runs the length of the bar into the formal dining room. Diners relax beneath beams of warm, slatted cherry wood and mellow, meal enhancing lighting. Wooden tables are draped with crisp white tablecloths and encircled by big, roomy arm chairs that mix American clubhouse with American opulence. The private dining room seats and additional 50, and can be divided into two more intimate and quiet spaces, providing a perfect venue for a variety of events and activities.
