About U Cafe Kosher Restaurant:
At U Cafe everyone feels comfortable. Business people and rabbis schedule meetings here, it is a warm and cozy (haimische) place.
U Café is many things to many different people. For the people who live nearby, it is the Jewish and neighborhood equivalent of the Frenchman’s restaurant, the bistro where he or she has his or her table and takes all his or her meals. These are the Upper East Side “regulars”: psycho-analysts, Torah scholars, rabbis, Mt Sinai and Sloan Kettering physicians, sculptors, painters, party-planners, businessmen and women, mothers with young children, young grandmothers, young great-grandmothers, senior citizens, whom you may always find there: sipping one of the delicious home-made soups, (French-onion, carrot, or sweet pea), devouring one of the creatively prepared fish dishes (salmon teriyaki or salmon pineapple), lingering over one of the fabulously original desserts. Many neighborhood residents often invite their entire families from the outer boroughs or from Long Island and New Jersey for lunch or dinner. The staff knows them by name, knows what they love to eat.
Reviews & Comments
Prices have gone up and quality has gone down. Portion sizes are small. It is a shame, because when they first opened U Cafe was a great addition to the Upper East Side dairy restaurant choices. Not anymore.
