Inside Upland, Zagat's Hottest New York City Restaurant of 2014

Located in Flatiron just east of Madison Square Park lies Upland, the restaurant Zagat rated as 2014’s hottest restaurant. Head chef Justin Smillie takes California-inspired cuisine and transforms it into New York Cuisine that covers the California coast with New York flair. Upland describes it’s approach as hoping

to translate the ingredients, flavors and techniques of contemporary California cooking to a polished East Coast setting…Built around a culinary philosophy that takes heavy cues from the seasons, Upland balances a familiar rusticity with a smart global approach and a New Yorker’s eye for detail.

Upland is located at 345 Park Ave between 25th and 26th streets in the Flatiron District of Manhattan.
