If you want to mix it up a little over the weekend, you might think about checking out the Yabu Pushelberg-designed Tapas restaurant in midtown New York, Stone Rose. Located at 10 Columbus Circle at 60th Street, you will be privy to almost unmatched views of Central Park, while lounging in style in either an intimate spot, or a place specifically designed for group dining.
If you’re not so into the whole live music thing (which starts on an early weekend from Wednesdays ‘til Saturdays), go from Sunday to Tuesday and use Stone Rose to just sit and people watch. Even if you’re there alone, you can take advantage of Happy Hour and the bar scene. And for a fun birthday celebration, why not book a private party at Stone Rose? Although on a review it was rated as having an “energetic” noise level, sometimes this can provide the company you are looking for, without the pressure of having to engage with someone at the end of a long working week.
It’s all in a Name
So from where did the name Stone Rose originate? On its own admission, “for its masculine elegance and design finishes in stone and rosewood.” In terms of its food, order one of the plates and share with your beau. Check out the wild mushroom crostini with chèvre and white truffle oil; Kobe beef skewers; daikon sprouts and fresh mint; or shrimp summer rolls with shredded snow peas.
