THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Elaine's Restaurant Review

: This Upper East Side tavern has been a draw for celebrities (most notably Woody Allen) and gawkers for years. Owner Elaine Kaufman's menu features starters like mussels fra diavolo, crab cakes and truffled seafood salad. While entrées change daily, you'll often find veal chops and an assortment of fish, chicken and pasta dishes.
