Alright i cant decide. Continental mid town is where i originally wanted it- i like that itd be a more laid back atmostphere and really embracing summer, but they dont do “seated” dinners really, and i worry the place is starting to look dingy on the roof deck- not to mention its awfully expensive for what you get. R2L seems nice, good enough food and my FI loves the views of the city— but i hate its enclosed and seems kinda corporate.

Girl, it is going to be too damn hottt in August to be on that cramped roofdeck. R2L will be lovely and airconditioned.

Not everyone wants to “embrace summer” – I’m voting R2L for your guests. Plus, it sounds like a really great option all around.

I work in the building where R2L is located and the view truly is unparalleled. I don’t think it’s “corporate,” especially in the evening. I think it’ll be fantastic for a rehearsal dinner….I agree that the roof deck at Continental is a bit dingy and I’m usually disappointed in the food when I eat there.
We had a FANTASTIC private event at Square 1682. They were amazing to work with and the food was great. If you’re still considering other options, I’d highly recommend Square 1682.
