Every wonder where to eat when your shopping or visiting the city? You know those times, when you want to try something new and feel like you’re a regular “upper east sider or a “UES.” Well, I’m about to introduce you to one of those places, Bocca East!
I happened upon Bocca East one night when I was in the city and looking for a great neighborhood spot, with a good vibe, melt-in-your-mouth burrata, and excellent Italian food. While I’m writing this, my husband is trying to take the credit for this find. The restaurant’s décor is rustic with exposed beams in the ceiling and wood all along the walls, which works much to my surprise! The wait staff is 100% percent on top of everything, right down to helping you pick out the best glass of wine, (based on your description). Their menu features an array of fab dishes; on a recent visit I had the Bucatini alla Amatriciana, which was soooo good! You’ll see in the video I posted, they even have an outrageous hamburger, and on another night there, I had the Branzino Grigliato. Is there anything they can’t make AND make it delicious? Seems to me, the answer is a resounding, “No.”
You’ll go to Bocca East the first time, cause you’re thinking it’s worth a try and you’ll end up coming back again and again because it’s just that good!
