Recent Restaurant Closings on the Upper East Side (East 60s)

With many new additions to the neighborhood, that means there are closures. We're sad to see some of these places go!




David Burke's Fishtail
The view from the rooms in the front of the building will certainly be different without Fishtail across the street. We're hoping to see a  great restaurant in its place soon to fill the void. 135 E. 62nd St

Texas de Brazil
We can let out a sigh (of relief) as "the Worst Steakhouse in NYC," Texas de Brazil, closes their UES location. Read more here. 1011 3rd Ave 

Sirio
Owned and operated by the Sirio family, the upscale, old school Italian restaurant in the Pierre hotel will close on Feb. 20th after less than four years in business. Read more here795 5th Ave

Swiftys
Swifty's, which opened in 1999, served its final meal to regulars like Michael Kors, Aerin Lauder, and Serena Boardman, New York Social Diary reports. The news that the restaurant was closing came as a surprise to many. 1007 Lexington Ave

Bread Factory Café
The bakery chain with two locations in Midtown and Hell's Kitchen closed its UES location. They served pastries, juices and standard lunch fare. 785 Lexington Ave

Le Magnifique
The French bistro with a NY twist closed and is now replaced with another French bistro, Casimir & Co. Judging from its less-than-stellar reviews, Le Magnifique was anything but. 1022 Lexington Ave

Circus
The upscale Brazilian restaurant known for its faithful reproductions of South American cuisine quietly closed after 18 years in business. It was replaced by Maison Hugo. 132 E. 61st St

Teavana
Closed it's UES location on 3rd Ave.

Moved to a different location:

Rouge Tomate
The Michelin-starred restaurant closed its UES location in August and will soon open its new downtown location in Chelsea. Luckily for its fans, the health-focused restaurant is expected to retain its high quality and socially conscious food. 10 E. 60th St

Park Avenue 
The popular Uptown restaurant that changed with the seasons closed its doors and reopened downtown (still Park Ave, but now on the corner of 26th). Like before, the menu and decor changes every winter, spring, summer and fall. 100 E. 63rd St


1871 House

Bed-and-Breakfast-style and quaintness in the heart of New York City

1871 House, a Charming Upper East Side New York Style Bed & Breakfast consisting of seven generously sized apartment-style suites housed in a classic 19th-century brownstone on an inviting, tree-lined residential street near Central Park, shopping and museums.
