Dinner near the 92nd St. Y

Not my 'hood. Suggestions? Prefer >$50 pp, any cuisine ok except for heavily carnivorous stuff.

      Thanks, I saw those. The most recent post is from last August. I was hoping for more current info.

        From my perspective, a lot of the recs are still good - I don't think the scene has changed much lately, other than the move of Joanna's to the corner of 92nd & Madison. I live right in the neighborhood.

    2. I just ate at Peri Ela on 91/Lex. Really delicious turkish and quite a pretty place. Had a bunch of the small plate which ran around $8 per plate. No liquor license yet but wine store next door. It's pretty small and filled up by 7pm on a weeknight.

        Thanks for that rec - I've not heard of it - will have to check out.

      2. I know you didn't want "heavily carnivorous stuff," but I'll still throw in a rec for Ottomanelli New York Grill...Lex at 93rd.


          1. Peri Ela, the turkish place, just opened a few weeks ago. It is really cute and the owners are really nice. A friend also just had a great meal at Itzocan Bistro, 101st and Lex. Yura, the UES cupcake czarina, is about to open a new restaurant on Madison near 92nd, I think it is going to be called "Square Meal" or something like that, and should be open in the next week or so.
