Casual birthday dinner on a budget on a rooftop spot in Oct.

Celebrating my 35th birthday and want to enjoy a casual dinner on a rooftop location with views of the city, but don't want to break the bank. Any suggestions?

What does it take to break the bank, as that is a rather vague number. Budget and rooftop are not great partners but look into EATALY's Birreria

Hi Nywhiz,

Thank you for responding, you helped me so much during my first trip to New York, I planned my trip in October not only because it was my birthday, but I thought it would be fall weather in New York. Was I wrong?

October is a great time for NYC weather (and yes, it's fall), but many rooftop bars close soon after summer ends. It starts getting chilly. October is variable, but is generally jacket weather.

Birreria stays open because they have a retractable roof and heaters.

The Press lounge on top of Ink48, a Kimpton hotel

Go up for drinks and light items from the bar menu.

Eat dinner somewhere nearby.

For very good food that won't break the bank, consider Pio Pio

www.piopio.com/locations/hells-kitchen.html

Their Matador combo serves several at a very good price - or order individually.

Another idea - very small rooftop bar on the top of the LaQuinta with a view of the Empire State Building -

Go to a rooftop bar for drinks and light snacks/bar food - not for a birthday dinner. Eat dinner nearby and end the evening with drinks and a view.
