Upper East Side NYE - affordable
Every other year we spend new years at a piano bar on the upper east side. 84th and 2nd. It is a place where we are semi regulars so we know the staff and are very loyal. It is a ton of fun, and we are going with a lot of friends this year. We would like to have dinner in the neighborhood early in the evening before going to the bar early to get seats. Some of my friends are on a tight budget so affordable is appreciated.
Thanks for your help.
The food's not amazing, but Tony's Di Napoli is right there. Oh, and whoo-hoo Brandy's! (that is where you're going, right?)
Pio Pio's at 90th/1st has cheap but delicious Peruvian roast chicken and sangria. The sides are hit or miss, but you can't go wrong with the chicken or the sangria. Be warned, though--they don't take reservations and the place is tiny.
I assume you are referring to Brandy's?!?!? One of my favorite places to listen to piano music! Who is performing on NYE? Lauren? I haven't seen her in soooo long.
Try Elio's. Great italian food!
