The Upper East Side holds a host of delights for its fortunate residents, from world-class museums to unsurpassed shopping. But anyone who lives in this tony enclave knows that a real highlight of UES living is access to some of the world's best food, featuring flavors from around the globe created by the city's foremost chefs. When you live in the luxury Upper East Side condos for sale at The Kent, you're in the heart of this culinary splendor and can head out for fine dining anytime the mood strikes — breakfast, lunch, dinner, or anything in between.
Sometimes though, you might want to keep the cashmere sweatpants on and stay within the luxe, amenity-filled spaces of your Upper East Side condominium. And who could blame you? With a customizable kitchen that merges modern amenities with sophisticated European style, you may even be tempted to whip up your favorite dish on the Miele stove. It is, however, just as lovely (and a little more stress-free) to order in, unpack the food on your marble kitchen island, open a bottle of wine from your Sub-Zero wine fridge, and simply indulge.
Let's take a look at some of the Upper East Side's premiere spots for ordering tantalizing takeout. Bon appetit!
Tony's Di Napoli
Is there anything more life-affirming than a mouthwatering meal of Italian food shared with friends and loved ones — accompanied, of course, by copious amounts of wine? Bring the flavors and conviviality of a classic NYC restaurant to your home when you order from Tony's Di Napoli. This traditional "red sauce" joint offers roll-up-your-sleeves meals with abundant portions of chicken parmigiana, penne smothered in bolognese sauce, and expertly prepared steak.
No matter what time of year, you can summon the feeling of a pleasant summer day by the sea by getting one of that season's quintessential delicacies: the lobster roll. You'd be hard pressed to find a better place for this buttery delight south of Maine than Luke's Lobster. Their menu extends to all sorts of crustacean creations, like shrimp and crab rolls, as well as shellfish twists on comfort food. Think: lobster mac and cheese.
Speaking of comfort food, there's nothing more comforting than a meal in an iconic New York City diner. But at EJ's Luncheonette, you're treated to a diner experience that is truly elevated — whether you eat in or have your meal delivered. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, your options are seemingly endless, but they will always be delicious. Have a sumptuous brunch at home with EJ’s savory eggs Benedict, or try one of their over-the-top challah bread French toasts. EJ's Luncheonette has been serving the Upper East Side since 1992, and they’re bound to become a frequent (if not weekly) player on your food delivery roster.
No matter what you order, your meal will be made just a little more special when you enjoy it while overlooking the city from your luxurious at-home vantage point at The Kent.
