No trip to the Upper East Side would be complete without a trip to a swanky wine bar or post-college gastro pub. Since this neighborhood is home for much of our team, we rounded up some first hand favorites for eating and drinking on the Upper East Side.

Bocca East is a favorite for its casual Italian trattoria vibe.

A runaway favorite UES pub in our office? The cozy atmosphere and friendly staff at Jones Wood Foundry.

New arrival, The Penrose, has an extensive bar, delicious comfort food, and a young rustic atmosphere.

Get your guacamole fix at the UES outpost of Toloache.

Grab a glass of wine at the trendy, tucked away wine bar and restaurant UVA.

If you’re in the mood for seafood, grab some friends and mix and match at Flex Mussels.
