AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Local hangout): Since opening, this posh Upper East Side neighborhood brasserie has been a great spot to see and be seen. No need to go below 57th Street again.
This sophisticated but not stuffy spot on the Upper East Side is the first French brasserie from well-respected chef Michael White. It features "feel good" Gallic cuisine, including prime entrées like grilled lamb, orange duck, pan-sautéed trout and regal Dover sole. But what steals the show is the great White Label burger with fontina cheese and tomato jam. Located near the stretch of ultra-pricey Park Avenue property known as "Billionaires' Row," people-watching at this recommended restaurant can be colorful. Interiors are voluptuous, but tables are spaced a bit tight in the otherwise nicely refined main dining room. Enjoy lounge seating at the comfortable bar. If you are not one of the local billionaires, affordable prix fixe options are available.
