The Upper East Side’s sleepy Yorkville neighborhood just upped its foodie game with the arrival of Eastfield’s, sister to The East Pole in all its Americana-chic glory. Sustainable fare, a light-filled garden alcove, and an elevated cocktail program make up the backbone of brothers Tom and Anthony Martignetti’s latest expression, drawing even downtown’s most stubborn diner north for Chef Joe Capozzi’s bright market-driven dishes. Pull up a seat at the potted plant-studded marble windowsill bar with a North Fork Negroni (local eau de vie, Aperol, Amaro Montenegro, orange twist) or a Sgt. Pepper (local strawberry and black pepper mezcal, cranberry, lime) and promptly photograph in the copious natural light, segueing into the daily oyster selection for starters (with a side of Scotch egg) followed by braised heritage lamb shawarma on grilled caraway flatbread or Chef’s pan-seared Arctic Char. East Pole favorites make appearances throughout the menu (macro plate, anyone?) alongside Eastfield's newcomers -- the best of both worlds under one white-and-navy lacquered roof. If anyone needs us, we'll be uptown until further notice. Contact your Attaché for reservations and more menu picks.
