Contactless Food Delivery on the Upper East Side
The Upper East Side is celebrated for its high-end dining; name almost any type of cuisine, and this NYC neighborhood does it with panache. And in the current circumstances, many are doing contactless food delivery directly to your door.
Four of Algin Management’s no-fee apartment buildings—330 East 85th St., 96th Street Brownstones, The Parkview, and The Pearl—have the honor of being in the delivery area of the following restaurants. Time to get your orders in.
Mediterranean dishes—with a particular focus on Greece and Cyprus—are realized with exceptional care at Korali Estiatorio. Commence your feast by sharing a meze of grilled octopus and scallops with asparagus and onion soubise. For main dishes, feast on Papoutsakia (braised eggplant stuffed with ground beef and smothered in bechamel) or the Shrimp Santorini (in which jumbo shrimp, tomato, and feta masterfully combine). For the full experience, select a Greek wine from the menu: we recommend the Assyrtiko Hatzigiannis white.
In 10 successful years, Libertador has become something of an Upper East Side institution for those who adore juicy, melt-in-the-mouth steaks. The mixed grill for two is a good place to start: share this mouthwatering chef’s selection of short ribs, New York strip steak, and chicken breast with a side serve of French fries Provencal. The Libertador chefs will cook the meat to your exact liking—just as they would do if you were sitting at a table in their Manhattan restaurant. And for decadent lunch eats, check out the range of grilled meat sandwiches or salads tossed with cheese. A tasty end-of-week treat.
A trip to Japan might be off the cards in the current situation, but the reviews for dishes delivered by Meijin Ramen are near-impeccable—and if you haven’t yet ordered any of their out-of-this-world food, it’s time that changed. For a wholesome meal, opt for the veggie ramen—loaded with green spinach noodles, Enoki mushrooms, and tofu—with an appetizer of spicy edamame. In a more daring mood? You’re catered for with the Japanese fried chicken or pork loin katsu curry, washed down with a lychee mojito. (Warning: you’ll be drinking these all summer long.)
You can also bring the taste of freshly prepared sushi into your NYC apartment, thanks to Poke. Tantalize your taste buds with red snapper sashimi, sweet-tasting Kumamoto oysters, and spicy crab tempura hand rolls—delivered at zippy speed to your home. A highly satisfying yet healthy banquet is guaranteed. If you’re ordering on the weekend, be sure to have a bottle of sake on hand.

At-Home Activities at Hilary Gardens
At Hilary Gardens, staying home isn’t just a choice—it’s often a preference. Elegant interiors and finishes, stunning views of New York City, and enviable residents-only amenities make this one of Manhattan’s most covetable destinations for no-fee apartments.
With a Hilary Gardens apartment, you can let Manhattan come to you. Oversized windows look out onto breathtaking skyline views. Relax in your living room with hardwood floors, pour yourself a drink, put on a quintessential NYC soundtrack—think The Velvet Underground, Billie Holiday, Wu-Tang Clan, and Vampire Weekend—and admire the city from your armchair. You can also relax in the leafy, landscaped plaza in front of Hilary Gardens, watching the world go by. And when you’re ready to head back inside, there’ll be a 24-hour doorman to greet you.
Although Hilary Gardens apartments are packed with “wow” factor, they’re also wonderfully homey spaces. Now is a better time than ever to learn how to cook, and Hilary Gardens offers the perfect gourmet area to do so. Make the most of the kitchen, with its stainless-steel appliances and stone countertops, by following the lead of fiery Brit Gordon Ramsay on MasterClass. Once your culinary masterpiece is complete, why not crash out and enjoy it in front of a quality TV show? Now’s a good time to get an Apple TV+ subscription and delve into the brilliant Aniston/Carell TV anchor drama, The Morning Show, or the 10-part docuseries Dear…, which hones in on world-changing legends, including Spike Lee, Oprah Winfrey, and Stevie Wonder.
Crowning this 35-story Manhattan residence is a two-level rooftop sky deck.* From up here, you can luxuriate in 360-degree views of NYC while soaking up the summer sun. Chat with your fellow Hilary Gardens residents or simply get lost in a podcast. Best of all, the sky deck boasts a heated rooftop pool, meaning you can do laps while admiring the iconic Manhattan skyline. Then recline on one of the pool-side loungers with a drink. Rather than jogging along the Manhattan streets, make the most of the treadmills and weights at the Fitness Center. And, as evening sets in, you can hunker down in the on-site sauna. Everything about Hilary Gardens gives you a warm feeling.
