Having received unfavorable reviews from New York Magazine and the New York Times when it opened, Robert, on the ninth floor of the Museum of Arts & Design in Columbus Circle, enticed me by guaranteeing a table at the window. The critics ought to return, since the entrees (Arctic char, swordfish, scallops) were expertly prepared (except for overcooked Yukon Gold potatoes) and artfully presented. But the appetizers (watermelon salad, pickled salmon, oyster fritters) stole the show. (And it was very nice to be able to have a simple dessert--one scoop of white peach sorbet.) Yes, the view, in addition to the edgy and delightful space by Schefer Design, would compensate for a great deal, but the food would be highly commendable even in a lesser environment.

For anyone visiting the recent Slash: Paper Under the Knife exhibit or looking for a unique spot to try out restaurant week--this is a safe bet. On the ninth floor of the Museum of Arts and Design this is a highly designed cocktail lounge--brightly colored sofas and chairs, glass table tops and a glossy black grand piano--all overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park. The tables right by the windows are reserved for diners, but we had no trouble getting a great view from the floor to ceiling windows. A nice array of unusual cocktails and great service.
