Overlooking Lexington at 60th on the chic, upper east side this restaurant is a favorite of celebrities, businesspersons and and the greatest looking ladies who lunch.
Our lunches consisted of nothing more than salads and sandwiches but my-oh-my -- the portions are plentiful and the food is astounding. Did we mention that everything is fresh and beautifully prepared and presented? Plus, the service is top-notch and the people-watching can't be beat.
A member of the staff informed us that just last week Bruce Springsteen stopped by. Well, we're not fans of "The Boss" but how about this: Jack Welch, his wife Suzy, and Charlie Rose had lunch here recently, near the tables of Al Roker and Vera Wang.
Fred's will do significant damage to your wallet but we highly recommend it at least once.
