One of the best parts of dining at Asiate is the expansive, floor-to-ceiling view of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline that you’ll see from your table. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant is designed so that almost every table enjoys a good glimpse of the vistas. But there are a few offering premium, unobstructed views. Indeed, even the most jaded native New Yorker’s jaw drops at the sight of treetops in full bloom in Frederick Law Olmsted’s famous green landmark, or the sun casting a golden glow on the stately apartment buildings lining Fifth Avenue at dusk. If you’d prefer to sit next to the soaring windows, make this known when you place your reservation, although the staff of the New York restaurant cannot guarantee a window table. We’d recommend requesting the circular table in the corner where the northern wall of windows meets the eastern one. Though if you’re looking for a little more privacy along with the panorama, mention you’d like one of the high-backed leather booths along one of the walls of windows.
