Simon Pearce Restaurant

Quechee, VT

Glassmaker Simon Pearce’s restaurant, housed in a restored mill overlooking the falls of Vermont’s Ottauquechee River and its covered bridge, is a food destination worth its out-of-the-way address. The exposed-brick and blond wood terrace dining room—hanging over the falls—is open and airy in the summer and fully glass-encased during winter. Ask for “table #5,” an intimate two-seat table set directly over the rushing river.

The River Café

New York

Ignore all the marriage proposals taking place around you: the real romance here is the iconic New York City view, looking out to the Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty. But unlike some view-focused restaurants, the American menu lives up to its iconic surroundings (and has a Michelin star to prove it), featuring stone crabs from Florida, chicken from the Pennsylvania Amish, beef from Nebraska, and foie gras from the Hudson Valley.
