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!

Tonight was an entertaining concert by influential, gifted, and driven artists. We shall be hearing from them more and more as their sparkling careers continue to evolve. The band was solid, the sound balance was excellent, and the musicians seamlessly shifted through the demands and diverse styles of the songs.
