Eats on Lex
Venue says Enjoy 12 fresh Blue Point Oysters & one of our hand-made, Signature Martinis for only $20!

This Upper East Side bistro is a great place to grab some quintessential New York meals whether your parents are visiting from out of town or you just want to catch up with friends. The dimly lit corner restaurant exudes “Nora Ephron Rom-com” and breathes new life into the classic duo Martini and Oysters. Their creative and extensive list of martinis gets the craft cocktail treatment with flavors like Double Espresso ($15) and a Pickletini ($15) made with real pickle juice. If you’re lucky like we were, you’ll get Eugene as your server and he’ll create a martini based on the flavor notes you prefer. A great wine and beer selection will please the non ‘tini drinker in your group as well.

What’s a martini without some oysters? Eats has a great raw bar selection to share with friends. Best of all, if you come during Happy Hour from 4:00-7:00pm, you can get $10 Martinis and $1 oysters making it a perfect first date spot. Appetizers veer away from the fried mozzarella sticks and include dishes like the Spanish Style Gulf Shrimp ($15) that left us questioning whether it’d be inappropriate to lick the plate clean. If cold appetizers are more to your liking, the Tableside Steak tartare ($15) with house fried chips will hit the spot. 

Entrees stick to the classics such as Crispy Salmon Filet ($28), New York Strip Steak ($34) and Braised Beef Short Ribs ($30). Their burger menu offers up protein choices such as steak, lamb, veggie or even salmon burgers. The menu boasts an impressive variety of healthier options that caters to all eaters from those perpetually dieting to the Upper East Siders that have lived in the neighborhood since the 1950s. Though you may not get a fictional Nora Ephron film’s leading man meeting you for dinner, you will certainly get the spirit of the old New York we all fell in love with along with some great Martinis at Eats.

Eats is the perfect place to stop for lunch on the UES when the weather is nice.  They have a nice indoor/outdoor patio that allows for enjoying the weather and people watching.  The grilled chicken sandwich and kale Caesar were my favorite items.  The other items recommended were the fried chicken sandwich and the burger.
