Dopo East Restaurant Review

: The younger sister restaurant to Midtown’s solid Trattoria Dopo Teatro, this slightly Upper East Side eatery is elegant in its décor and rustic and simple in its offerings from the kitchen. Start with the grilled octopus, which is nicely crisp on the outside (ignore the bland purple potatoes and artichoke that accompany it) before moving on to the pillow-soft gnocchi, which is pleasingly drenched in a lamb ragù sauce. Hearty entrées include a good lamb dish, appearing on the plate as six or so tender little morsels; roasted Cornish hen and the pan-seared sea bass are also winning options. The wine list is refreshingly affordable with glasses for around $10 and a few decent bottles in the $30-$40 range.
