There’s an airy, nautically inspired freshness about Eastfield’s that makes it feel like the cozy belly of a ship. With its white-painted brick walls, the dimly lit Yorkville space has warm naval accents: white piping on dark-navy banquettes, thick wooden beams overhead, and vintage globe pendants hanging from a ceiling dotted in carbon-filament bulbs. Green fragrant herbs grow in clay pots lining the elevated street-side windows, which give the illusion of floating above this busy Upper East Side corner. Here, the diner can only look up at the sky and surrounding architecture: no passersby, no cars, no street-level grime. The team behind Brinkley’s and the East Pole has created a locavore-driven menu and selected equally extensive red- and white-wine lists, but original cocktails from the marble-topped bar are standouts: the refreshing Summer in the Garden with cucumber-infused vodka, and the popular Spiciest Margarita. A vast array of vegetables sourced from local farmers’ markets anchor nearly every entrée, like spicy green peppers flavoring the rich (and really good) braised lamb shawarma, or purple basil adorning the chicken parm; the Piedmontese skirt steak, marinated in chimichurri overnight, seemed too heavy atop a dense bed of potatoes. The menu is heavy on seafood (arctic char, striped bass, a kale Caesar salad served with anchovies), plus a range of lighter bites like the daily oyster selection or zesty, lime-tinged peekytoe-crab toast. Dessert is also seasonal with fruit pies, tartines, and sweeter options: butter whiskey pudding, Valrhona chocolate cake, and Brooklyn’s Blue Marble ice cream.
