Rockefeller Center Cafe, NYC12

Rockefeller cafe burger

Love the view and the HUGE portions!

30 Rock is one of my favourite TV shows so I was very excited to have lunch at the Rockefeller Center in New York City where the show is set.

During Winter, a public ice skating rink is set up, and the cafe is located right beside it (with a glass window separating you and the skaters).

It’s a cosy little restaurant with very attentive waiters who make it their priority you never have an empty water glass.

But let’s get onto the food…

A plentiful bread basket arrived, however, I knew better than to devour it as I wanted to order pasta.

Hubby had the burger which was served with a super big portion of fries and onion rings. That does not count as two portions of vegetables – according to me!

Apparently it was very juicy and full of flavour with nice cheese that wasn’t those horrible plastic squares that masquerade as cheese at fast food ‘restaurants’.

Rockefeller cafe pasta

Double the amount of pasta I normally eat!

It was a chilly day so I wolfed this down. The creamy tomato sauce went really well with the prawns (shrimp!), roasted eggplant and herbs.

BUT, it was served with Parmesan cheese on top – what the hell? Any self-respecting Italian will tell you not to serve cheese on seafood pasta. That’s a food crime.

I would have left the cheese off if I was given a choice.

Rockefeller cafe view

The view from my seat.

We saw a few people fall over (oops!) and some people were really impressive. They must have been practicing during Summer (?!).

BTW, I love following 30 Rock actors on Twitter (their real, not character accounts) – Tracy Morgan, Judah Friedlander, maybe you will too?

Travel update

Currently I’m enjoying beautiful San Fransisco. In a few days we’re starting a road trip South-bound on HWY 1 along the coast towards LA.
