Eats on Lex
This retro-looking bistro on the Upper East Side serves classic American fare for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Start with a raw bar sampler ($27 for a small platter, $48 for a large platter), brandied chicken liver mousse ($14) or mussels three ways ($19) and perhaps one of the restaurant’s signature martinis ($15). For your main course, you might opt for the dry-aged steak burger with caramelized onions ($17), pork shoulder ragu with braised kale, pappardelle and shaved parmesan ($26) or the bricked Cornish game hen with mashed potatoes and gravy ($24). At brunch, you’ll find lighter fare like a fresh kale salad with pears, golden raisins and pecorino ($13) alongside heartier options like an open-faced serrano ham and egg sandwich ($14) and challah french toast with vanilla-cinnamon cream cheese and strawberries ($13). Don’t worry—the burgers are also served all day.
Venue says: “Enjoy 12 fresh Blue Point Oysters & one of our hand-made, Signature Martinis for only $20!”
