Any food gems in Upper West Side?
I'll be in NYC this weekend for one day and hoping to find some inexpensive dinner options in the Upper West Side. I'm not aware of any good eats in this area...any suggestions? Thanks!
Gem might be a strong word..
For decent price friendly Thai there's Land on 82nd/Amsterdam.
Also, for great Italian, Celeste is great - 84th/Amsterdam - really tight quarters and cash only.
Steer clear of Land. Over-rated, and lacking. Food is sub-par and not "in-expensive." As a resident Upper westsider, the I can tell you that for inexpensive gems, the pickings are slim. Celeste, or Genarro should fit the bill.
The Allstate is still a good standby for comfort food--prepared well, huge portions, and a nice comfy vibe on a cold winter night.
