Sat night dinner on UWS?

superfine Jan 17, 2008 07:15 AM

We have visitors from SF coming on Saturday night and we'd like to take them to a nice restaurant on the UWS where we recently moved. Something moderately priced, but not outrageously expensive with nice ambience and great food. I've tried a bunch - Telepan, Dovetail, Ouest, Compass -but am too late to get a reservation unless I want before 6 or after 10, which i dont. Any suggestions of a great place where we can actually get in on Saturday night with a reservation at this late date? Anywhere from the 50s to the 80s is good.

Thanks so much!

      Not in the category of those you mention, but very pleasant ambience and good Med/Tunisian food at Epices du Traitteur on W 70th just west of Columbus.

          The only place I can think of that MIGHT be able to accommodate you, a Turkish/Mediterranean restautant, is Zeytin -- a favorite haunt of mine with really good food and fun atmosphere. (85th & Columbus)
