A conversation with a fellow Upper East Side-er today at work got me thinking about the best places to eat, drink and be merry on the UES. These are my staples — the places I think are worth going back to, time and time again…
*UVA. Great wine, great ambiance, great pasta, great everything.
*BEYOGLU. Mediterranean cuisine, with some of the best hummus (and bread) I have ever tasted.
I grew up in a small Massachusetts town before making the leap to Boston, and then New York. I adore the Royal Family, macarons, and getting to know the city I now call home. In college, I sang a cappella in a group called the Wheatones. Our signature song was a 3-minute tribute to Santa Catalina, 26 miles off the coast of California.
