Stouffer's Top of the Sixes, New York 1960s
Top of the Sixes was an iconic restaurant on the 41st floor of 666 Fifth Avenue New York. It opened in 1958 and by July 1973 had served its 10 millionth dinner. It was a magnet for visitors to New York and became a ‘special occasion’ destination. According to Hans Von Rittern: “Prices were reasonable. Children liked the view, and so did young couples on dates. Men proposed to their wives there,” it was a time when going to ”the city” meant journeying from Queens to Manhattan. You didn’t necessarily go there for the food; it was that wonderful atmosphere.
Top of the Sixes closed in 1996 and the space is now occupied by the Grand Havana Club, a private members cigar club.
