Revolving slowly on the 45th floor of the World Trade Center, Bellini maintains a formal, reserved character. It's known less for the food than for the views: romantically twinkling city lights at night and a pair of volcanoes on a clear day. Despite the name, most dishes here aren't Italian but rather Mexican and international, with lobster as the specialty. For a real night out on the town, order the Canadian lobster in coriander sauce for $50 a pop. Finish in style
with strawberries jubilee or crêpes suzette. Colonia Nápoles is a lovely residential neighborhood south of La Condesa and La Roma—you'll need to take a sitio (taxi stand or radio taxi) here. Monday through Saturday, the restaurant opens, oddly enough, at 1 pm—a little late for lunch. That said, it stays open till 11 pm. Sunday sees brunch from 9 am to 2 pm; the closing time remains the same.
