Celebrated Chef David Burke unveils David Burke Fishtail, a new innovative seafood concept on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Located in a historic townhouse, the bi-level eatery combines casual late-night dining with a casual bar in the ground floor bar with traditional sit-down service in the main second floor dining room. Fishtail offers the freshest fare – provided by Litchfield Farms as well as their own company-owned fishing boat out of Brielle, NJ. Known for its sustainable seafood, Litchfield Farms compliments Burke’s & Hara’s beliefs in providing diners with the highest quality ingredients that do not compromise on integrity. Together, they have created a menu of 85 percent sustainable seafood which is coded with levels of authenticity for guests’ reference. The 120 seat restaurant is located at 135 East 62nd St. between Park & Lexington Aves.

"We celebrated my husband's birthday at Fishtail Friday night and discovered that the diners at the two adjoining tables were doing the same. Clearly, Fishtail's patrons view this as a good place for a celebration. Even though it was restaurant week, we opted for dishes that had an additional charge - a great idea as it keeps the price low and the options high. The oysters were fabulous as was the lobster bisque. My martini was the best I have had with olives stuffed with truffled feta cheese. My only "complaint", if you could call it that, is that you have to order the lollipop cheese cake tree for two. My husband loves it so that is what we had but I would have preferred one of the other options."

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 />

"There were so many unique and tempting dishes on the menu, our party of four celebrating my birthday did not know where to start. Fortunately, our waiter guided us through the appetizers, starters to share and main courses. We ordered just enough to leave room for a dessert that we shared. Our selections were all fabulous, especially the tuna tartar, and we will have to go back soon to try new selections."

"I usually love Fishtail. Dining at this beautiful town house on a tree lined street in the upper east side makes one feel as though they are invited to a special home. The lobster bisque was as good as I have ever had. This trip, we were celebrating the birthday of a friend in from out of town. Unfortunately, several options were not available to her as she is gluten intolerant. Also, we sat forever waiting for my husband's dessert which never came. The server brought the bill before checking. She was apologetic but this was not up to the standard we expect and have experienced at this restaurant. Don't put your fork down or someone will try to swoop in and remove your plate. I hate that."
