Lucky to get a table thanks to friends who used their influence to get us reservations on a rainy Saturday night and they squeezed us in, literally. Its a tight fit and the staff were constantly hefting chairs and tables around the place as they re-configured for groups coming and going. A buzzy Italian bistro feel to it, excellent, pricey...

The menu was easy to navigate around meat, dairy, shellfish, etc. for allergy... More

A pleasant place, good service, nice salads and other possibilities - we were in search of just that plus a break from shopping and Amaranth hit the spot. We are not locals but spend quite a bit of time in the area and will certainly return to this restaurant when we want a reasonable bite well served. Dishes are fresh... More

I had heard a lot about this restaurant but was blown away by the food. Hopefully other compatriots will enjoy this food which is close to home.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
