When it comes to special views, The Palm Court restaurant has some of the best New York City has to offer. No, we’re not talking about views of Central Park and the outdoors, but instead people-watching — one of the most authentic experiences you can have in the Big Apple. With the restaurant’s location next to the lobby of The Plaza Hotel, you have the privileged view of watching guests as they come and go for their stay. Another special view at The Palm Court? Look up. The gorgeous (and recently restored) 1,800-square foot stained glass lay light on the ceiling is illuminated by rich colors that change throughout the day. When we were there for brunch, it was filled with whites, pinks and blues, but in the evening (when the restaurant is closed), the color of each panel was lit up by a deep red.
