Uva has always and will always be a special place for me. When I first moved to NYC over 6 years ago from today, I lived in the Upper East Side. UVA quickly became one of my favorite restaurants in the area and was always where I would celebrate birthdays, bring guests visiting me, or just have a nice Sunday brunch. They have the trifecta of seating options: a beautiful, intimate interior, outdoor street seating, and an enclosed garden (with heat) for year-round seating!
Their brunch is a great balance of unique, flavorful, and affordable! They have a great brunch deal for $19.50 you get your choice of a brunch dish, a side, and a cocktail or glass of wine.
