Lunch @ 57th & First Avenue/Sutton Place
Last minute plans bring me to this Upper East Side
area, for a mid-morning appointment. Any suggestions
for a nice place to have lunch? Thanks.
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...
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?)
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.
