If a restaurant connected to a high-end gym franchise isn’t your first choice for a cool night out, you might want to reconsider. Electric Lemon, the rooftop hotspot perched atop the Equinox Hotel in Hudson Yards, is actually pretty great. The food here is marketed as healthy-ish, and it sort of is, but it’s also just solid New American fare. Will it blow your mind? Probably not, but this is a Stephen Starr restaurant, so everything is going to taste much better than what you'd get at your average influencer haunt. The outdoor terrace has a bunch of aesthetically-pleasing features, like an infinity pool and a fire pit, making it equally good for taking photos and actually enjoying the space.
