Great lox options, and if u doing the museum or environs, should try out. We were there for awesome Chagall and Speigalman exhibits, don't miss them! Need 100 characters, but made my point, so blah blah blah

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
