You're on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Maybe you live here, maybe you're visiting. You're hungry or will be hungry soon. Where should you go or order from? No sweat, I've got it covered.

My recommendations are sorted by type of restaurant and will include a price rating from 1 to 5. 5 is the most expensive it can get and 1 is the cheapest thing around (but in New York, I don't think anything is a 1).

I'm not going to promise to have all the best restaurants or even most of them. These are just the restaurants that I frequent and would gladly recommend to a friend.

Price rating: 2

What to get: Bacon, egg and cheese sandwich, burgers... it's a diner!
