Went to the Red Bar based on Chowhound comments and really liked it. The $25 3 course pre-fixe was a great value and would appreciate any similar pre-fixe recommendations on the Upper East Side.
At Red Bar the app is a choice of soup or salad and entrees is always a choice of fish of the day or another item and then a choice of about 5 desserts. The entree choice other than the fish special is listed on the menu for each day of the week. We went on a Tuesday and it was the duck which was very good and a very large portion. For dessert, we had a warm flourless chocolate cake with peanut butter filling and vanilla ice cream on the side.
