chow ivo Amsterdam and W. 79th?
Lots of good suggestions, some details of those and a couple more:
Nice Matin.....I think it's overpriced for dinner, but good for lunch or brunch. Nice pan bagnat, if you like that.
Jacques-Imos.....The best dish, I think is the fried chicken. The alligator sausage cheesecake is good. Jazz on Sunday afternoons. They have good Bloody Marys, or, if you prefer caffeine and sugar to alcohol and spice, they have a special iced coffee that's amazing (not on the menu, but they have it. Iced coffee, condensed milk, crushed cookies....)
Bistro Citron (Columbus btwn 82 and 83) has good mussels and fries and other bistro fare.
GRAY'S PAPAYA. 2090 Broadway 71st..

I think the Jacques Imos is worth going to.. I like the bloody mary's, i like the bar, i like most of the food..
