Our son started with Pork Belly, and my husband and I chose the Jumbo Shrimp with Cognac and Cocktail Sauces. Everything was mouthwateringly delicious and beautifully presented. I decided to go for a pescatarian Christmas following the Jumbo Shrimp with the Red Snapper. Served with roast tomatoes, fennel, olives and capers and accented with garlic and basil oil, the fish was beautifully moist and so well filleted that I did not come across even one single bone.

Christmas Pudding was definitely not on the menu, but we really didn't miss it. The Key Lime Pie with Blackcurrant Coulis was a lovely sweet/tart finish to my meal.

We were all very impressed by the impeccable service and wonderful food, particularly considering how busy the restaurant was. Furthermore, although they were desperate for tables, and when we left the queue was longer than ever, we never felt rushed. It was a great atmosphere, and we all enjoyed watching the skaters outside as well, particularly when one man did a bit of impromptu ice dancing, and later when a couple got engaged before our eyes.
I highly recommend the Rock Center Cafe anytime of year, but if you find yourself planning a visit to New York at Christmas, this is definitely a place you ought to consider reserving a table.
