Editorial reviews from the web (5) view all

Upper East Side locals tout this "everyday" French bistro near the Queensborough Bridge for its "flavorful", Moroccan-accented cooking "served with a smile" by an "earnest" crew; "decent" pricing and a "relaxing" (if "nothing-fancy"), brick-walled setting add to the overall "charming" effect.

Casual French bistro on the far east side with upscale food, a moderately priced wine list and weekend brunch. Read More

Nothing out of the ordinary...except ...

Average Rating

Not particularly charming, Bistro 61 offers a decent menu and delivers decent food. Unfortunately, it pairs this reasonably priced food with unreasonably priced wine. On our visit, there were three bottles of wine identified in a section of the list called "Under $40". Their prices were $38, $39, and $39. Keep in mind we were there for lunch (so sandwiches and salads were among the entrees...

Mother's Day

Average Rating

Came here for Mother's Day brunch, so it was pretty busy. Showed up early and while our table was not yet ready, the staff was very accommodating by bringing food to the bar area for our hungry kids. A little disappointed that the menu for that day did not include mussels or escargot, but there were plenty of good choices.

Tips about this business (1)

Tapas joints in Manhattan are notoriously cramped--not so at this spacious and sleek Upper East Side eatery, opened by the brothers behind Astoria’s El Boqueron. Brick walls, unique dangling light fixtures and wine barrels create an intimate atmosphere where authentic tapas like creamy cod croquettes and tender veal meatballs are served. The name “El Porron” refers to a distinctively-shaped, shareable glass pitcher, so its understandable that vino is a big draw--a variety of Iberian selections are available for under $13, though most are served in a traditional glass.
