The East Pole, on the Upper East Side, is housed in an historic brownstone on a quiet block of 65th Street. Drawing on old maps and subtle nautical accents, the main dining room & bar is timeless and sophisticated with a clean, simple aesthetic focusing on high quality materials.<br /><br />The menu features simple yet elevated home cooking with a focus on local, seasonal, organic produce and sustainably sourced proteins. For Drinks, our signature cocktail menu & full bar service, with a focus on small batch distilleries, breweries & wineries are all available. <br />

"My husband had a British breakfast special with sausage and the works while our friend had wonderful sweet waffles. I had about four healthy options to choose from. I thoroughly enjoyed the avocado toast and eggs. Green juice drinks are available as well. Our waitress was delightful. We will be back."

"We started off the meal with an excellent portion of guacamole with crab.The selection of mussel preparations is extensive. I had mussels with crab while my husband had mussels with blue cheese and bacon. Both were delicious. Next time we visit we will try some other preparations. The menu isn't limited to mussels either. We added two side dishes of truffle parmesan fries and squash drizzled with honey. The fries went particularly well dipped in the sauce used to season the mussels. The restaurant is somewhat spare in design. Our waiter was attentive and helpful."

Chef Daniel Boulud’s vibrant Mediterranean menu offers flavors from France, Spain, Italy, Greece, North Africa and Turkey. There is an emphasis on grilled fish and meats as well as an abundance of fresh vegetables. With an entrance on West 64th Street, Boulud Sud is just steps from Manhattan’s Lincoln Center and is adjacent to Bar Boulud and Épicerie Boulud. <br /><br />Monday through Friday Boulud Sud offers a $29.00 three-course lunch in addition to our a la carte menu. Sunday brunch is served from 11:00am-3:00pm with a $32 two-course prix-fixe supplementing the regular menu. At dinner, Boulud Sud offers our full a la carte menu as well as a $60 three course prix fixe menu featuring Boulud Sud classics and a 7 course tasting menu showcasing all of the flavors of the Mediterranean at Boulud Sud for $115. For lighter fare, join us in our bar and lounge open from noon daily.<br /><br />Three private wine themed dining rooms are available for private events. <br />

"This was our first visit to Boulud Sud. We assumed we would order off an a la carte menu, but were pleasantly surprised with the tasty options on the $60 prix fixe menu. I had a sinfully rich pasta, cheese and scallop appetizer. I opted to spend an extra $24 to have black truffles added to the dish. My husband enjoyed the octopus appetizer. It's different in that it has less paprika than the usual Galacian dish.
We followed the first course up with dourado and a spicy chicken dish. Both were excellent. The third course consisted of the signature grapefruit dessert and the bread pudding. Again, both were excellent. The grapefruit is particularly light and refreshing after a full meal.
We both enjoyed the cocktails as well as an order of fried artichokes. Service was solicitous. We will definitely return to Boulud Sud."

Owner Jacques Loupiac presents a taste of Provence at La Panetiere. The cuisine is contemporary french, and the dishes change with the season reflecting upon products purchased from market-gardeners, fishermen, free-range poultry farmers, and other purveyors who deserve the respect of their authentic products.

X2O Xaviars on the Hudson is Peter X Kelly’s latest addition to the Xaviars Restaurant Group. It sits in the water on the only turn of the century Victorian pier still in use on the Hudson River. X2O’s Main Dining Salon's 25 foot vaulted ceiling and 3 walls of glass frame offers views of the George Washington and Tappan Zee Bridges, as well as sunsets over the Palisades. Guests encounter dishes incorporating classic French technique with Italian and Spanish influences, and Asian embellishments which create a wholly original cuisine unique to the Hudson Valley. The Dylan Lounge is a vibrant, up-tempo space with a sophisticated and playful bent that offers guests more dining options. Guests are invited to sample a variety of small plates and sushi, while dining at the Communal Table, sushi bar, or at traditional banquette and table seating.

"I started with an egg custard dish which had a delicious flavor, but it was served lukewarm. My brook trout was pleasant, but not memorable. My husband started with a tempera tuna roll that he was quite pleased with. He followed that up with a rack of pork that was excellent. He had banana bread pudding for dessert, which was superior to the almond cake that I had. The service was very attentive. The dining room is cavernous and rather stark. The lighting is a bit off. That said, the room is organized in an efficient manner. We were unable to appreciate the water views because it was dark outside. Therefore, we would like to return for brunch so we can better appreciate the setting."
