  1. Ichiro is pretty decent sushi - 2nd around 87th. I like Chef Ho and they offer a 1/2 peking duck - 2nd Ave. around 90th.

    1. try we live at 96 & lex and we find its the best for many options without having to deal with a lot of fuss.

      1. 101 & Lex, Itzocan Bistro. Had dinner there based on recs on this board and loved it. Reasonable prices, really delicious food, great menu and our server was very helpful with ordering recs. At our request, steered us to better app choices and we were delighted with what we ended up with.

        1575 Lexington Ave., New York, NY 10029
        at 101st St.

        Also try Salata on Madison between 96th & 97th, I think. They have 2 store fronts on the same block, separated by a few other businesses. The northern-most has good deli sandwiches etc while the other (my favorite) has very nice salads, fresh and tasty. I've seen sushi being made but haven't have any.
        You serve yourself from a very clean and inviting salad line and can take away or look for an empty table in the tiny space in back. I have had the curried chicken salad, lentil salads, dolmadas, really good fresh fruit and others I can't recall now. Good, quick, fresh, and decent prices.
        Not sure if they deliver and it's not exactly around the corner from you but if you're nearby it's really worth a visit.

        1. Milano, which I believe is right across the street from you on 3rd Ave has decent italian sandwiches. A few other places have recently opened on 3rd on the west side of the street, haven't tried them yet. Also, may not be what you're looking for, but Ecco La seems to finally re-opened (3rd and 93) after an almost 2 year renovation.

          1. I lived on 95th / 3rd (Normandie Court) for years and always liked for delivery:

            Sala Thai
            Taco Taco
            Midnight Express (diner food)
