Lunch @ 57th & First Avenue/Sutton Place
A moderate place is Chianti - 55th and Second - it's on
the southwest corner. There are outside tables. It's
the former site of the Second Ave Brasserie was, then
Zona del Chianti. I was there about a year ago for
lunch - pleasant room, good food, if I remember
correctly the menu was in the $9-17 range.
if only march were open for lunch, my life would be
complete. but since it's not, i'd go for felidia over
the others. have a glass of homemade fruit grappa after
something traditional, and you'll be happy. we had a
fine prix fixe lunch there for my last birthday. and if
you're a charcuterie fiend, there's always that french
place down the street that gives a huge
sausage/salami/bread board gratis, but it's not
everybody's cup of tea (lunch by the pound?)
There are many good places to eat in that area. Of
course, there are certain detials that may narrow the
price, casual/formal, cusiine, etc. But here are a few
March: on 58th between Sutton and First. Very
expensive but worth it!
Bouterin:59th between 1st and Sutton. Also very
expensive but wonderful French.
Felidia: 58th between 2nd and 3rd. Wonderful Italian.
Match Uptown: 60th st between Mad and Park. Great
food, less expensive and less formal than the rest and
a pretty scene.
Sofia Fabulous Grill: 61st bet Mad and Park. More
casula. Wood burning oven pizza, delicious simple.
I could go on but...
