An Upper East Side Institution

From our curved zinc bar decorated with antique seltzer bottles, to our colorfully tiled floors, our cozy restaurant evokes the essence of Alsace at every turn.

For 15 years, we sat on the south-west corner of 88th St and 2nd Avenue, before moving just a block away to a historic location, the former site of Elaines, which was there for over 50 years. We continue Elaines dedication to serving the neighborhood, and know that many of our regulars view Cafe D'Alsace as an extension of their own kitchens. We are entirely New York owned and operated, buy local wherever possible, and love serving our community and this great city. 

Our Executive Chef, Philippe Roussel, is one of New York's greatest, working at iconic restaurants from Windows on the World to Restaurant Daniel. His dedication to culinary excellence is reflected in every plate, and has drawn recognition from the likes of the New York Times, Wine Spectator, Eater, Forbes, and more.
