Newly-opened Eastfield’s Kitchen & Bar looks like a cross between classy diner and airy greenhouse with its diner-style booths, marble table tops, wooden décor, exposed light bulbs, and herb garden decorating the large front windows—creating a simple, bright, and elegant effect that is mirrored in Head Chef Joseph Capozzi’s food. Eastfield’s serves up fresh, homey, but elevated farm-to-table fare, like its sister restaurant, UES brunch mainstay East Pole. The seasonal menu includes lightly dressed radishes, beet gazpacho served in espresso cups, burrata over maitake and red onion-topped puff pastry, and a deconstructed take on chicken parm. All ingredients are locally sourced, and portions are generous. Eastfield’s, located in Yorkville between 78th and 79th Streets and York, is open for dinner, brunch, and drinks.
