“Downtown moves Uptown” via this Fat Radish offshoot that's “enchanting” Upper East Siders with its “farm-to-table-done-right” , British-accented New American fare and “original” cocktails served in airy, “hip” quarters; despite “pricey” tabs, it's generally “crowded” – especially at the “fantastic brunch" , while its Fish Bar location focuses on seafood and oysters.

All in all an enjoyable brunch. Reservations recommended for groups or come early to avoid a long wait. The waffles were disappointingly lacking in lemon and ricotta flavors but still tasty. Avocado toast made up for it - generously slathered, delicious bread, and perfectly soft boiled eggs. With so many great brunch spots in the city, hard to rank this one as exceptional.

While the fantastic food drives East Pole's wide acclaim, I'm most enchanted by its inviting atmosphere. Cozy, intimate and dimly candlelit throughout, the restaurant is a bit more lively downstairs, while the upstairs offers a quieter escape—in my case, perfect for dinner with Mom. The professionalism, knowledge and personability of our server, Bill(y), enhanced the experience even further. But that's not to say the food isn't worth celebrating. While some prices can exceed their value, the starters and entrees alike are consistently delicious and compellingly presented. The menu is diverse but not overwhelming, with options for all dietary preferences, including a vegan "macro plate" (best with hot sauce).

Nice cozy place with amicable bartenders. A bit pricey tho, especially the 70$ chicken, kinda over the top. It ain't duck, it's just chicken. But grilled cheese is great! So at least you can nimble on something without having to sell a kidney later.
