If ever you find yourself looking for a place to have a drink on a Sunday evening when you'd prefer to get away from everything, then it wouldn't hurt to have the East End Kitchen near the top of your list.
While segments of the Upper East Side closest to Central Park are often touted as "prime" Upper East Side, here's one secret that anyone who lives closer to the East River will tell you: it's nice to be by the water.
Beginning just north of East 79th Street and ending at East 90th Street, East End Avenue serves as a bridge between the quiet and serene Carl Shurz Park and the rest of the Upper East Side.
Overall, much of East End Avenue holds a resort or hideaway feel. While Third, Second, First, and even York Avenues have enough transportation, dining, and shopping options to pull you in for curiosity-satisfying strolls, East End Avenue is unique in that those who find themselves there either live nearby, or have travelled to the avenue with a purpose.
