Comfort Zone
    
   
Fulton is a welcome addition to the Upper East Side. And contrary to its name -- which is a tribute to the Fulton Fish Market -- it serves more than fish! For more information on how to maximize your dining experience there, please read on.

Reservations
Because Fulton is an intimate restaurant, reservations are strongly recommended. They can be made by calling the restaurant directly, by visiting OpenTable.com or simply by clicking the “Make a Reservation” icon at the top of this page. We suggest calling at least several days before your planned visit.

Seating
Seating at Fulton is incredibly comfortable with dark wood and leather chairs and chenille-like banquettes. Outside chairs are woven and comfortable. Tables are generous at 24 inches by 30 inches square for two guests and 48 inches by 30 inches for four guests. The wooden and leather chairs are about 17 inches at their widest point. No one seat in the restaurant is either too close to the kitchen (which is downstairs) or the door (which is prior to entry to the lounge). Every table is a good one at Fulton.

Atmosphere
Although the restaurant is intimate, the atmosphere at Fulton is incredibly comfortable. No table is placed too close to another, so there is no “cramped” or “crowded” feeling. Additionally, the banquettes are chenille with pillows, which creates plenty of added comfort. Music plays and conversation ensues, but noise never gets too loud. Staff is incredibly attentive, as is management. You will not be at a loss for attention or service here and in spite of the intimate nature of the restaurant, it is perfectly possible to have a private conversation or dinner. It’s the perfect addition to the Upper East Side.

Restrooms
The restrooms at Fulton are in the restaurant and on the same level; no stairs are required. There are two separate unisex rooms and they are more than ample.

   
     
    
Dress Code
Although the dress code is casual, please use discretion.

Parking
Fulton is easily accessible by subway, taxi or bus. Subway lines include the 6 to 77th and Lexington and the 4 or 5 with a transfer to the 6 at 59th Street. If you choose to drive your own vehicle, there is street parking and there are also multiple pay garages on 75th between 1st and 2nd and 3rd and Lexington.

Awards
Because Fulton has just recently opened, we’re not expecting any awards just yet, although we certainly expect to see it win some in the near future. As a start, Executive Chef Culver will be cooking at the James Beard Foundation Chefs and Champagne Event in late July 2009. We should note that Joe “Citarella” Gurrera has been honored as 2008 Retailer of the Year by the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, and that his retail chain, Citarella, has been a favorite among New Yorkers since Joe purchased its original location on Manhattan’s Upper West Side in 1983.

*Please note that the restaurants featured at TravelsinTaste.com may have changed their personnel, menu, pricing, decor, hours of operation, etc., since our last visit. The competitive and creative nature of the fine dining scene virtually assures that changes will occur on a frequent basis in order to make diners happier, meals more pleasurable and visits more frequent. Given their frequent fluctuations, most restaurants welcome inquiries about their current hours, menu and more.
