We stopped by for lunch earlier this week, and were lucky to snag a couch outdoors, under a heat lamp, with a perfect view of Citi Pond. We found the service to be helpful and attentive, with a relatively quick turnaround time. All in all, we found the selection to be a slight improvement from last season's visit.

Our food selections:
Golden Stuffed Artichokes and Chilled Cherry Pepper Shrimp
Inside the delicious fried artichoke creation with blue cheese, garlic spinach, and lemon pepper remoulade, which we ordered sans bacon.
Greek Salad with lemon-oregano vinaigrette
Side of Truffled Mac n Cheese
Home-style Chicken Pot Pie
Grilled Hangar Steak with demi glace
Black and White Flourless Chocolate Cake
Our favorites: The greek salad is served with generous helping of feta cheese, but you can also add shrimp or chicken, if you want to make this salad an entree. Other standouts were the golden stuffed artichokes, and the dessert with a Kahlua crème anglaise.

Some areas of the restaurant may be closed occasionally for private parties, and tables at Celsius become a hot commodity, when the rink is busy on the Holidays and weekends. Celsius does not take reservations. However, we found our weekday lunch visit to be a breeze.
