Their rooftop is a popular dining spot for locals and tourists alike.
For Thanksgiving, Rustic Root will be offering a three-course holiday menu from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m. You and your loved ones can come out and watch the football game while enjoying a delicious traditional meal and soaking in the view of 5th Avenue.
