Any suggestions on good restaurants close to the 92nd st. Y?

  1. My favorite place to eat around the 92nd St. Y is Pio Pio for delicious and inexpensive Peruvian-style chicken. Le Bern it ain't but the food is addictive.

      Sfolgia is across the street...make reservations way ahead of time

        There was a disappointing report from a poster on it earlier this week - I've not been since last summer. My new favorite in the area is Square Meal, on 92nd between 5th & Madison. Still byob and now open for lunch as well. Reservations are a good idea. The food is excellent and pretty reasonable for the quality - we usually spend about $80 for two appetizers, two main course and a dessert.

          fwiw, I was there two weeks go and found it delightful as ever....the poster with the negative report noted "pasta with bolognese" was heavy, ah, that dish tends to be heavy, its kinda what it is....I would give it another shot...

    2. cafe d'alsace, really good cheeseburgers (ed levine votes as the best in nyc), also the only bar in NYC that has a beer somelier

      1. We love Cafe d'Alsace also (really good cheese & charcuterie plate) and we also like Pio Pio (good sangria too). In addition, if you're just looking for burgers, salads and such, we've been to Fetch (I think that's the name of it) and that was okay too.

        1. On the much cheaper side, Delizia Pizzeria on 2nd Ave and 92nd is great.
