Ever since I was a young girl watching everyone propose/get proposed to at the Rainbow Room, I always wondered what magic powers the place has that causes so many people to announce that they want to spend the rest of their lives with someone there.  However, in the last couple of years, I really haven’t heard much about them.  The restaurant is part of the Cipriani group, who name exudes money and top notch American cuisine.

I finally got to experience the Rainbow Room for myself due to a corporate luncheon held there one day.

bellini! my favorite peachy brunch drink

isn’t it a bit too early to drink at 10-11am?

The h’orderves: zuchini chips, cheese pumped onto pieces of napa cabbage, and proscuitto on a stick

My favorite part was standing around eating all the h’orderves and drinking my bellinis.  The actual lunch was a bit disappointing.  I guess it also attributes to preparing, cooking, and serving 100 plus people 2-3 choices at one time.  The quality would suffer a bit.  None of the food stood out to us in particular and the portions were tiny.

And.. we can’t forget the infamous chandelier!  I love the orange accents around it.
