Had a really good meal here. Restaurant was busy but our waiter was attentive throughout, constantly refilling drinks and asking if we needed anything. Myself, husband and teenage children all had starter and mains which were delicious. Portions sizes very generous - so much so...More

Finally tried EE Kitchen for dinner the other night. Had very good martinis, followed by a very good burger and strip steak. Attractive neighborhood place. Thought the service was ok, despite the complaints on service in some of the earlier reviews. We will happily return.

It was a long journey from Midtown, but a nice trip to the "suburbs". Sunday brunch was delicious and reasonably priced. Great menu variety Enjoyed a walk along the river back toward subway.

easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
