NYE Upper East Side

Hello Manhattan hounds!

My parents and aunt/uncle (all super amazing food people) are coming to NYC for New Years Eve. I will be working, so won't be able to have dinner with them, but I'd like to make a reservation for them somewhere nice. They are seeing my show at Park Avenue Armory (65th and Park Ave) at 9pm. It would be awesome to find a special place for them to eat near there, not too expensive, although I realize it's new years eve and they will want somewhere nice. I'll be trying to get a reservation for the 4 of them at 7pm on NYE, so maybe not the obvious spots.

They like all kinds of food, but are not super adventurous.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

  1. A 7pm reservation will mean they have to be out of there at 8:30 to get comfortably to there show, if it is nearby. That's pretty rushed. Consider at 6:30 reservation.

    How about Cafe Boulud?
