If you filled a stone-lined castle with all-white furniture and some good Greek food, it’d be doing a pretty solid impersonation of Korali Estiatorio on the Upper East Side. There are plenty of big tables (including one with a full tree in the middle of it), plus a bar, and the menu has all kinds of spreads and mezes to share, plus more Greek classics like lamb kebabs and saganaki. Use this place the next time you’re looking for a relatively upscale dinner near the 92nd Street Y, or an UES spot for lunch with your family.

An import from Nantucket, Sfoglia is one of the few Upper East Side joints that, if transported to downtown, wouldn’t feel out of place.
Earl’s Beer & Cheese
Earl’s menu of pig and cheese heavy snacks pairs perfectly with the small but righteous selection of draft beers that they have on tap. Head up north sometime to check it out, and also visit Earl’s sister restaurant around the corner, ABV.
