The Upper East Side is set to add two new restaurants in the coming months as restauranteurs with roots in the neighborhood seek to expand their offerings, including a new cafe set to open in Carnegie Hill and a new Asian fusion restaurant in Lenox Hill.
The team behind the popular UES cafe Bread N’ Wine, is set to open another establishment a block north of the current restaurant. Located at 1436 Lexington Avenue between East 93rd and 94th Streets, the new unnamed cafe will take over the long vacant space that was formerly home to the Greek restaurant Feta.
Details about the new cafe were revealed during Tuesday night’s meeting of Community Board 8 Street Life Committee, where business owners give a brief presentation to board members while seeking a recommendation for a liquor license.

Representatives were tight lipped about the new eatery, but did say it would feature a cafe-style menu and be open from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm Monday through Thursday — staying open a half hour later Friday through Sunday.
Also coming soon to the Upper East Side is a new Asian fusion restaurant brought to the neighborhood by the owners of Sea Salt — a mediterranean restaurant in Lenox Hill.
The yet-to-be-named restaurant is being built inside 1113 First Avenue, at the corner of East 61st Street, in the space that was formerly home to One Lenox, and is expected to have the same casual style as its sister restaurant which sits on the same block.
Hours there are expected to be from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm Monday through Wednesday and staying open until 1:00 am Thursday through Saturday. Brunch is also expected to be offered on weekends starting at 10:30 am.
