The Opportunity

Rock Center Café is located in one of the most memorable landmark locations in New York City. Known as “the city within a city,” Rockefeller Center was built in 1930 and offers an ornate architectural display that marries themes of culture, history, entertainment, and art in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Rockefeller Center encompasses 19 commercial buildings covering 22 acres between 48th and 51st streets in New York City. With beloved traditions such as the annual tree lighting ceremony and the seasonal ice skating rink, Rockefeller Center is a quintessential example of New York’s cultural and artistic significance, as well as one of NYC’s top attractions within Midtown Manhattan.  A legendary complex with nearly 100 years of history, Rockefeller Center is a breathtaking landmark for NYC locals and visitors alike. We serve seasonally-updated, chef-driven cuisine for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch, along with house-crafted cocktails and New York’s top brews in a classic Midtown lounge atmosphere. Rock Center Café offers exceptional dining ambience, featuring a series of original prints by the great American artist Andy Warhol, and stunning views of The Rink at Rockefeller Center in the winter months and Summer Garden & Bar in the summer months.
