The Low Down


Where to Sit: You'd think right up at the windows would be the best seats in the house---and they are good. But consider the lounge chairs along the back wall; from there you can take in the exterior and interior views.

On the Menu: Sixteen's Frank Brunacci handles Rebar's menu too, offering sushi hand-rolls and sashimi platters. The fish is fresh and the rolls are done right, but you'll scratch your head wondering why sushi.

When to Go: Try a clear afternoon. You'll have pickings of where to sit and the views will be outrageous. If you're looking for a bit of scene, there's no better time than early evening Friday.

The Extras: Obviously Trump has given stern orders to the staff here; you will be stumbled over, and it can be weird if all you want is a post-work drink. But bring and client, or a date, and it will make all the sense in the world.

Know Before You Go: The biggest table in the bar is for five---and it's tight. Come with a bigger group and those accommodating hostesses will guide you to a semi-private nook that can fit around a dozen.
