One can hardly walk by a new neighborhood restaurant without noticing it; especially a cozy Italian place on the Upper East side - LUNA ROSSA is a hit in the neighborhood. Developed by Paolo Floess, the long-time Chef,he work the past 17 Years on the Upper East Side its cuisine displays a special blend of contemporary and traditional dishes from all major twenty regions of Italy. It also offers a great selection of exquisite wines from north to south of Italy. LUNA ROSSA offers a very relaxing and mellow atmosphere, decorated with original works of art and delicate colors. It is definitely the place to dine with your family and friends or for a perfect romantic dinner.... LUNA ROSSA IS TRULY A MUST!!!

Delivering the bounty of the eastern shore line to the Upper West Side is Ed’s Chowder House, a new restaurant by Chef Ed Brown (chef/owner of Michelin Star-rated restaurant eighty one) and China Grill Management. Inspired by the ports of the East Coast, Brown’s refined yet unpretentious take on authentic “sea shack cuisine” features signature seafood in a vibrant, energetic setting complete with a raw bar and a full-service Chowder Bar serving crisp cocktails, cold microbrews, namesake chowders, steamers, lobster rolls and more.

Whether you are looking for an intimate dinner, planning a large party or just want to grab fare, you can do it all in grand style at Etcetera Etcetera."

Upper East Side restaurateurs Michael & Susy Glick offer you their one of a kind experience in Regional American cuisine at The Writing Room. Five years after opening Parlor Steakhouse, The Writing Room opens its doors in the same location as the iconic Elaine's. The Writing Room is a tribute to its predecessor while at the same time aiming to blaze its own trail with its combination of cozy and inviting decor, attentive service and a stellar and inventive menu developed by Executive Chef Lucas Billheimer. Offering cuisines that represent classic New England seafood to comforting Southern barbecue, Chef Billheimer will have you planning your next visit to The Writing Room before you've completed this one. The Writing Room also offers a private dining room quaintly referred to as The Study. We look forward to welcoming you.
