Have eaten here several times and we are quite pleased with the Copper Kettle Kitchen. Has a casual ambiance, and a menu which strives to be inventive, a trait missing in the vast majority of upper east side restaurants. The portions are smallish but that is a benefit in that you get to graze and try a variety of delicious dishes. Counter to what some reviewers said about the prices I thought they were fair given the portion sizes. As an example the striped bass entree was $23 , not bad given that it was wonderfully prepared , and while smallish this dish in a full entree size is at least $10 more in most decent places. Try the wild mushroom pappardelle while you are there. Will def be back!
