About Us



Sel et Poivre

Sel et Poivre is an Upper East Side neighborhood restaurant established in 1989 and is family owned and operated. The name is French for Salt and Pepper and you'll find just the right amount of spice at Sel et Poivre. Our dedicated staff is professional and welcoming and the chef serves traditional French classics which are hard to find, such as veal kidneys, sweetbreads and calf’s liver. Sel et Poivre's dining room seats approximately sixty people, providing a charming and restorative dining experience. Get to know Chef/Owner Christian Schienle in the video below.

Christmas Dinner at Sel et Poivre!

Sel et Poivre will offer a specially-prepared Christmas day menu prepared in 3 courses on Tuesday December 25th from noon to 9pm for $40 per person. Please make a reservation. You may view our Christmas menu here.

Frog's Legs and Cassoulet

Frog's legs have returned to the menu at Sel et Poivre, subject to availability. If you'd like to enjoy this classic but sometimes hard-to-find favorite, please reserve and mention that you're especially interested in ordering them. Moreover, as the weather grows colder with occasional biting winds and bone-chilling rain, our beloved hearty cassoulet will be making an occasional appearance as a special. Call to enquire if you love it—or just want to give it a try.

$1 Oysters

Sel et Poivre will offer $1 oysters every day from four to six o’clock in the afternoon. Join us daily for this pearl of a deal! We look forward to seeing you!

Monday Wine Special

Join us every Monday as local œnophiles (and would-be œnophiles) make merry enjoying a 50% discount on each and every bottle of wine they order. Santé! Prosit! Cheers! Make reservations today!
