Where To Eat On The Upper East Side
The Upper East Side is my home and it gets the absolute worst wrap around the city for its restaurants. I get it. I almost cringe at the thought of giving a recco up here. But that's changing! See for yourself!
This restaurant is situated in the sub-level of the extension of The Metropolitan Museum. It's beautiful, refined, upscale. It's exactly what you'd expect from one of the most famous museums in the world.
