      Earthen Oven on 72/Columbus for Indian
      Telepan on 69th (near columbus)
      Grom for gelato! (76th and b'way)

              substitute "greasy" for great @ big Nicks tho if you like grease it's prob great

              cesca is on 75th bet amsterdam & columbus, no?

              cesca & telepan may not be dinners you want to bolt down assuming this is pre-show at the beacon (which these days seems to feature reunion tours of every halfassed rock band that ever existed oops wrong board)

              I'd go for fairway cafe (like an enlightened diner food-wise, no atmosphere) or the noisy but serviceable citrus at amsterdam & 75th for sushi/amerikan/"mexican"

              grom is good gelato if you don't mind waiting in line to pay $5 for a thimble-sized scoop, they should call their servings "nickels & dimes" like oldschool dealers.

              Definitely Telepan, best restaurant on the UWS IMHO.

                  Cesca! I had the most wonderful risotto there the other night--w/ lamb, peas and mint. It was a special.

                Nikos (Greek). It is right across the street.

                  if you walk over to amsterdam there are a ton of moderately priced places you won't need a reservation. my favorite is Luzia's up near 80th. portuguese food. lot of fish dishes.
                  there's also a good sushi place.

                    I second Luxembourg and Fairway Cafe (right across the street from Beacon, on 2nd floor). Luxembourg is a very good, low-profile place. Among its virtues is excellent draft beer.

                      Gray's Papaya on W. 72nd and Bwy.

                        I'm with Lucia on Kefi (72nd)! Not a good place if you're in a hurry, though. Spiga on 84th between B'way and Amsterdam is more of a hike, but worth it IMO. Ouest, also in the vicinity, at B'way and 84th, is great--better than Cesca for the price.
