Kaia Restaurant & Wine Bar
$65 For A Michelin Pick 3 Course Dinner For 2 with A Bottle Wine (a $130 Value)

Praised by The New York Times and called “a warm and welcome respite off the beaten path” that is "impressive” according to The Michelin Guide, Kaia Restaurant & Wine Bar is an intimate Upper East Side favorite that exudes upscale elegance, all the while being a local jewel that's as intimate and cozy as it is exquisitely delicious.

Grab this $65 pulse (a $130 value) for a phenomenal 3 Course Dinner For Two, including 1 Appetizer, 2 Entrees, 1 Dessert, and a Bottle of Wine to share at this elegant locale.

Also making Eater's list of "New York's Essential Places", Kaia has been bringing South African roots to the city for 10 years, all thanks to South African-born owner Suzaan Hauptfleisch and Executive Chef Billy Dineen, who takes Hauptfleisch's mother's recipes and present traditional South African fare in ways your palate will adore.

Using local and organic ingredients, you'll dive into delightful dishes like the Vark Ribbetjies (roobois tea and cranberry rubbed baby back pork ribs) as well as Steak & Fries cooked to tender perfection. The Lynvis is equally decadent, boasting fresh pan seared tile fish with roasted corn puree, wild rice, and pickled fennel.

Drink wine from an expertly curated list of exceptional vintages, and expand your culinary horizons, becoming mesmerized by this refined treasure of epicurean wanderlust...


Kaia translates to mean "home" in Zulu, which is so wonderfully portrayed throughout the rustic 50-seat spot, adorned in lovely touches and convivial warmth. Hailed by The Infatuation and Time Out, Kaia celebrates South African cuisine & viticulture with precision and excellence.

Grounded in the rich history and cuisine of the region, Kaia develops marvelous comfort food that transcends cultural boundaries, all thanks to Founder Suzaan Haupfleisch - a South African native and decades-long veteran who adds La Grenouille to her resume.

The treasure is fit for romantic rendezvous, casual dining experiences, and just about any kind of celebration that is worthy of impeccable, authentic cuisine in an effortlessly wondrous setting.

The Buffel (bison, aioli, cherry compote) makes for a great start before diving into the luscious Lamb Burger (lamb, local Roquefort, sour cherry compote, brioche), and the Snow Crab & Shrimp Roll with peri peri chips, polished off with desserts like the Chocolate Terrine (amarula mousse & honeycomb) to end the night on a sweet note.

Sourced from vineyards all over the globe, you're gorgeous bottle of wine will be the height of your feast, elevated with every sip and the feeling of being home away from home...

All selections will be made from the restaurant's full dinner menu.

Your $65 Dinner For Two (a $130 Value) Includes:

  • 1 Small Plate.
  • 2 Entrees (Kombuis).
  • 1 Dessert.
