At this reinvention of the rinkside dining room that used to be the American Festival Cafe, they've dispensed with the American folk art and gone clean and contemporary, with onyx and marble accents and a comfortable bar made of blue macuba stone. Daily specials keep the American menu interesting, as does the strong Italian accent. Roasted chicken with vegetables and a very popular burger with sharp cheddar cheese keep diners focused on their plates rather than on the interpretive freestyle routines being perfomed on the ice.


In the summer, you’ll be seated outdoors on the rink with a view of NBC and Radio City Music Hall.
