It a big week for New York's newly open-for-the-season ice skating rinks. Bryant Park's rink, which is seasonally surrounded by holiday shops, now has a giant glass restaurant sitting by its side as well.

Celsius (housed in a tent previous years) is having a grand opening this weekend in their 7,000 square foot, all glass, two-story building. The balcony overlooking the park and rink is even complete with outdoor heat lamps for staying toasty.

They menu was created by the Buddha Bar team, helmed by Chef John Keller and Chef Andy Seidel, and you can expect "great comfort food with a Canadian accent. Menu items include: Bison and Three Bean Chili, Canadian Cheddar Mac & Cheese, Maple Leaf Cosmo, Northern Lights Lemonade." Full drink and food menus after the jump; and with drinks ranging from $7 to 14 and soups and salads from $8 to 16, it's a good thing the rink admission is free!
