First established in 2002 in the Financial District, the Financier Patisserie has become a mainstay in Sutton Place in recent years. Yes, the bakery does offer the classic French almond cake — and it gives a complimentary mini financier when you make a purchase. The French bakery also cooks up some of the best coffee you will have in New York City to pair with your morning pastries.
There’s pretty much a pizzeria on every block in Manhattan, so deciding on which is the best – might be a pretty difficult task. In 2013, new wave pizzeria Kiss My Slice Pizza was established in Sutton Place, quickly becoming a popular destination for the area’s residents. Consistency and stellar customer service are both a major draw, but it’s the thin crust traditional pies that have earned Kiss My Slice a place on the list of top lunch spots in the area.
The fact that you are living in one of the most affluent parts of the city runs concurrent with the likelihood of you finding some of the best restaurants in the city here. There’s Rosa Mexicano, Morocco’s Best Cooking and Il Valentino Osteria. This evening, you opt for the delightful and delectable Bistro Vendome. The French eatery is a brainchild of longtime Manhattan chef Pascal Petiteau. The restaurant offers signature Gallic classics with a modern twist such as roasted Maine sea scallops over orzo and porcini risotto. Naturally, while you’re at it, you may want to indulge in some moules-frites and escargots as well. With a sprawling skylight and light wood chairs and tables, the decor is reminiscent of the French countryside. Ooh la la.
