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.

Blake Lane is great for a reasonably-priced, healthy (enough) meal on the Upper East Side.
Fred's at Barneys NY
Why on earth are we reviewing a famous department store restaurant? Because it’s hilarious, that’s why. Nowhere else will you find such an entertaining mix of blown-out 55-going-on-22 moms, burnt-out post-college city natives, and people who think they look like celebrities but most definitely aren’t.
3 Guys Restaurant
3 Guys doesn't have the best food around, but it's a New York classic and still a great spot for people watching.

A great Greek restaurant with communal seating and a cozy vibe. Pylos got the seal of approval from our Greek friend, and he's a real snob when it comes to food from the homeland. Good enough for us.
"NO MENUS. JUST FISH" is pretty much everything you need to know about this Astoria restaurant.
In a pinch in the Lower East Side, Souvlaki GR supplied The Infatuation with some great Greek street food. Yes, it’s random. And yes, it’s delicious.

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.
