A recommendation from our CEO
The Upper East Local
In a neighborhood renowned for its blue blood aristocracy or derided for its co-ed constituency, The Penrose falls squarely in the middle.
No need for an ascot or to check IDs, as this uptown watering hole caters to a mature, yet still vibrant crowd of upper eastsiders.
The food menu is hearty and wholesome, with specialties like Oyster Sliders, Portobello Dip Sandwich, Blistered Shishito Peppers and Striped Bass Cerviche.
The drink menu is robust and rewarding, with killer cocktails such as the Dirty Pickle Martini, Little Jackpot, Orchard Smoked Shrub and Itty Bitty Pretty.
So next time you are in the upper east, venture into The Penrose.
You'll be pleasantly surprised.
