Let’s face it. The Upper East Side definitely isn’t the worst place you could have to travel to for an appointment. Just incase you’re not familiar with the area, we came up with a list of places nearby (walking distance) that we recommend visiting when you’re done with your appointment. There’s a ton of awesome sights to see, things to do, and restaurants to try.
If it is still breakfast time, or you’re in the mood for something light, we think Alice’s Tea Cup is a great place to check out. They have fresh scones daily and serve brunch. They are normally open til 5pm.
Get your famous New York bagels from here. They’ve been around since 1974. They have small tables for all of your classic bagels and spreads. They also have a mini marketplace where you can get smoked fish and desserts.
Luke’s Lobster is less than a block away and serves Main-style lobster rolls with toasted buns, clam chowder and other specialties. They also focus on sustainability.
4. The Penrose
The Penrose offers old-fashioned cocktails, beers, and a whiskey list. The atmosphere is unbelievable as there is reclaimed wood and vintage wallpaper.
5. Flex Mussels
Flex Mussels is another seafood restaurant on the Upper East Side. Originally from Prince Edwards Island, Flex Mussels serves very unique dishes. They serve brunch, salads, donuts, cocktails, traditional entrees, and of course a variety of mussels and seafood such as scallops, fish, etc.
Whether you’re in the mood for seafood, or you’re wanting to grab a quick bagel, these local restaurants are a must visit! After your appointment, stop on by and try out something new!
