Upper East Side
About the restaurant
Amaranth is located just off Madison Ave on 62nd St , between Fifth Ave and Madison Ave, in the heart of the most famous shopping strip of the Upper East Side of Manhattan and few steps from Central Park.
We credit our success to a very honest approach to Mediterranean cuisine: a fusion of original Italian food and French food, great hospitality and the highest quality of ingredients that we use in our recipes. A large portion of specialty items that we serve are imported from Italy and France.
Our famous Focaccia Robiola, our super fresh and tasty Seafood, creative Pasta and perfectly al dente Risotto, have attracted a dedicated fan base of New Yorkers, Europeans and celebrities, who are looking for a home away from home.
Our Mediterranean Bistro has a really charming terrace during the warm season, where you can taste our delicious food or enjoy a cocktail (try our famous Frozen Cosmo!) before dinner.

The food was excellent - thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Servers were helpful and knowledgeable and were very thorough in checking when it came to my "hidden" allergies. Very pleased with my experience and will go back again.

We sat outside, it was quieter outside, nice lighting on the table and strung above us. The cocktails and food we ordered were incredible. I had my grandfather with me, and he enjoyed the meal. Our servers were attentive. Another great experience at Zou Zou!
