Eli’s Table is the restaurant version of a famous NYC deli (Zabar’s), so you should expect to see everyone from infants to 97-year-olds eating at 9:30am on a Sunday. They have dinner, wine, and cocktails, but the menu gets way less deli-ish after 5:30pm. So we suggest you come for brunch, when they serve kinda-pricey Jewish classics (the bagel with lox is $16), and things like oatmeal and grapefruit (see age range above) and a chopped liver sandwich.

Walking by Bella Blu, you might assume it’s just like every other mediocre, stuffy restaurant in the Upper East Side. Stuffy, it most certainly is. But it’s actually far from mediocre – as long as you order correctly.
