It’s another cold and rainy night in The Big Apple, just the right conditions to meet a friend uptown for dinner. We met at Elio’s located at 1621 2nd Avenue at 84th Street. As you see from the images, Elio’s is an old-school Italian restaurant with close, intimate seating. While this arrangement made the room a bit noisy by 7 pm, the food service was outstanding, with delicious dishes brought quickly to tables.

Here are the bar, and dining areas.

Counting calories like so many people, I paused to decide between the Seafood Salad or Chicken Paillard Capricciosa. I opted for the Chicken Paillard — simple, delicious, and capricious as advertised.

First came the bread basket with olive oil or butter. Hot and freshly made with a delicious crust.

The Chicken Paillard with a side of tender, seasoned green beans. A perfect pairing!

My meal was a little pricey but competitive for the Upper East Side (or Yorkville as residents prefer to call it), with tax and tip $43.

Buon appetito!
