This might be the Upper East Side’s best gourmet bargain. And considering it’s only got 24 seats—seven of them bar stools—the joint’s low profile is a blessing. The bar shares an impressive cellar with Etats-Unis, its sister restaurant across the street, whence comes some of the hearty fare like a seriously satisfying beef stew. For a lighter bite, you can’t go wrong with farmhouse cheeses paired with one of the terrific by-the-glass selections.
