Anyone know any thing about Marika on W 70 St., next door to Cafe Luxemburg?
Yes. I posted on it a while back, but there's also a long thread on articles about it, so searching might not work too well.
Briefly, I think it's really good. I haven't tried Ouest, but other than that, I think Marika is the best "high-end" restaurant on the UWS.
Everything was good, but I especially liked the pork dish (rack of pork); might be the best pork dish I've ever had.
Ate there a while ago and it was wonderful - service, atmosphere and food - and they gave each of us a big, delicious cookie to take to Lincoln Center for intermission!
I was there during the summer. Very pretty interior. OK to good food. Small portions. Very expensive for what they offer. Mostly empty of cusomers. I would not go back.
