Blake Lane serves California-style food on the Upper East Side, which means mostly vegetables, fish, and a few meaty things. Service is informal, prices are reasonable, and you can have a meal here that won’t weigh you down. This isn’t a destination restaurant, but if you’re wandering around the area in search of a quick piece of fish or a salad, Blake Lane is an easy option. Come in the daytime (it’s better for that), and avoid sitting at or near the bar. It gets cramped over there.
