Celebrity chef David Burke’s original restaurant on the Upper East Side has undergone renovation and now reflects the playfulness of the menu. Hand-blown glass balloons, hanging chandeliers, red carpet, specially commissioned lithographs, and back-lit, salt-brick wall behind the bar enhance the experience of eating dishes like pretzel crusted crab cake, chicken-fried skate, and the popular cheesecake lollipop tree. Butchery fans can also learn a thing or two about Cornish hens, ducks, and porterhouses at the carving station. The three-course prix fixe is a popular lunch option that pairs light and healthy appetizers with signature David Burke entrées.

Insider Tip:

With tables just inches apart, the dining room can get crowded. Call ahead and ask for a corner table.
