Like to eat where you cook? This edition of the Open House Scorecard -- the 10 open houses StreetEasy users saved to their open-house calendars more often than any others this sunny weekend -- features several apartments with EIK options.

Let's start with a two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo (pictured) on West 79th and Amsterdam listed for sale by owner at $1.649m. The windowed, eat-in chef’s kitchen has been renovated and features floor-to-ceiling Italian cabinets. Each bedroom has a custom walk-in closet, and the building is zoned for PS 87. It’s not far from Central and Riverside Parks, and there’s a full time doorman and resident super.

An eat-in, windowed kitchen is the highlight of a $1.25m two-bedroom, two-bathroom prewar condo on 90th Street and Broadway on the Upper West Side. The kitchen is also equipped with granite counters, stainless appliances and plenty of cabinet space. The building features a live-in super, 24-hour doorman, a fitness center, central laundry and onsite storage. Plus, there are just four units per floor, and the common charges ($587) and monthly taxes ($540), are fairly low.

A few blocks south, on West End Avenue between 81st and 82nd Streets, a renovated $1.249m two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath co-op features a windowed kitchen with a breakfast bar that seats two, a wine fridge, a W/D and top-notch appliances to boot. The living room can fit a dining table, and the building itself has a full-time doorman, a bike room and storage bins, as well as a common roof deck, and it’s close to Riverside Park. 

Nearby you’ll find a new-to-market, move-in ready $1.295m two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op featuring a windowed kitchen (with a breakfast bar), and the dining area can be converted into a third bedroom. Located in a postwar elevator building on West 79th, the kitchen in this unit has been renovated with Bosch stainless appliances, Caesar stone counters, glass tiled backsplash, a wine cooler and custom wood cabinetry. The bathrooms have limestone tiles and mosaic trim and Hansgrohe fixtures. But washers and dryers are not allowed within the apartment.
