A Day in Clinton

The Clinton/Columbus Circle area is sprawling, much like the Upper West Side or the Upper East Side. Your newest digs in Columbus Circle are the perfect microcosm of New York City, with the best restaurants and the views of Central Park. That’s not counting the glorious history that comes with the area.


Your first breakfast in the neighborhood will be wrapped in style. That’s because you are sitting in Landmarc, in the Time Warner building. The American cuisine spot is the brainchild of famed Chef Marc Murphy. Landmarc cooks up some straightforward bites to get your day going on the tasty side of thing. Try the Landmarc Egg Sandwich, which features sausage, roasted tomato and gruyere. There are also lighter choices like the steel cut overnight oats and granola with berries and yogurt.


Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill

Lunch is going to be a special treat today given how you have a chance to sample the decadent bites at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill. The restaurant is part of the famed Blue Ribbon restaurant group. The lunch here offers great platter options such as the surf and turf for two as the Blue Ribbon Special. But you will also have a chance to sink your teeth into some fantastic duck breast (served with Asian broccoli, cauliflower puree and orange teriyaki).

The Shops at Columbus Circle

The high-end shopping feels truly at home in this neighborhood. The best is to be had at The Shops at Columbus Circle, which is part of a series of skyscrapers that hover over Columbus Circle. The multi-level mall only has the top of the line shops like Michael Kors, Amazon Books, Bose, Aveda, Coach and Diesel. But the highlight of the shopping center is the lobby which rotates sculptures hanging from ceilings and affords shoppers a majestic view of Columbus Circle through its windows.


Columbus Circle

The intersection itself is usually a nightmare for motorists as it's regularly grid-locked during the day. But Columbus Circle is a nod to New York City’s European ancestry. Named for Christopher Columbus, the circle is dominated by a tall column statue of the famed explorer. The monument is decorated with bronze reliefs representing the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. Surrounding the circle are landmarks like the Trump International Hotel and Tower, the Time Warner Building, and The USS Maine National Monument, which welcomes pedestrians into Central Park.

A Night in Clinton



There are also so many high-end restaurants in this part of your neighborhood, with several proudly sporting the prestigious Michelin star. Among the must-try's are Per Se, Rosa Mexicana and Kilo. Still, the best of the best is easily Jean-Georges, located in the lobby of the Trump International Hotel and Tower. The restaurant, which has no less than three Michelin stars to its name, offers traditional French cuisine and is considered one of the top 5 best French eateries in the country. The restaurant has also been the breeding ground for many talented chefs.


Barcelona Bar

Your night has only just begun and the next perfect option is a trip to the Barcelona Bar. The Spanish-inspired bar has become the place for the most creative shots, not drinks. There are more than 100 shots on Barcelona Bar's list with creative names as Full Metal Jacket, SpongeBob SquarePants, Monica Lewinsky, and Harry Potter. The shots all come with a themed glass and a way to drink them.

Center Bar

If you are feeling cocktails, then you must head to the Center Bar. The small but chic watering hole offers the best craft cocktails in the neighborhood. There’s the must-sample tea rose champagne special, a spectacular concoction of Moet Champagne, Rose macerate and Nolets gin. There’s also the Saratoga, which is Boulard VSOP Calvados, Montenegro and apple.
