Our Upper East Side French Bistro / French Restaurant welcomes you with walls of exposed brick and bare, candlelit walnut tables which create an inviting atmosphere, further accented by burgundy banquettes and terrazzo floors, providing a decidedly Old World ambiance to this Upper East Side gem; a neighborhood favorite.
Bistro 61 is a cozy place with delicious critically acclaimed food, an elegantly relaxed atmosphere, and a world-class staff. We are a local neighborhood French Bistro feel, however, our patrons come from all over NYC and we are not just an “upper east” type crowd.
We are open for lunch and dinner (a very popular Brunch spot on the weekends) so that no matter what time you are craving a delicious meal, we can always satisfy your hunger.
Our acclaimed fresh mussel dishes, steak fries, truffle fois gras, burgers, and creative salads are customer favorites. Bistro 61 uses only the freshest ingredients. We take pride in ensuring that every dish is of the highest possible quality.
Bistro 61 provides austere yet comfortable outdoor seating with café space on both the avenue and street surrounding a cozy corner Upper East Side, NYC spot.
