Pulse, with a perch overlooking Rockefeller Center from inside the SportsClub LA, was terrific when I went with friends. It's perfect for a light gourmet lunch. The dumplings, noodles and Asian greens hit the spot, and the sake grilled short ribs melt in your mouth - I had to restrain myself from ordering a second plate. My friend had the panini and it was also excellent - a simple black forest ham and harvarti cheese with tons of flavor, perfectly crisp. The views were really spectacular, I can't wait to go back at night.
Pros: delicious food, amazing views, good for lunch
