OK- I know it is a bit of a trick question- who wants to admit to having a favorite on the UWS...But we live here- and have a young child so I like to eat out in the neighborhood (without her) and I hate paying the sitter for my travel time downtown if we just want to have a nice dinner and a movie.
SO please- let me know what your favorite restaurant on the UWS is- so that I can stop going to the same 4 places- thanks.

          good suggestions so far. i'd also add gabriella's (moderate), ouest (expensive), 81 / eighty one (expensive), thai market (inexpensive), and compass (expensive).

          other places that many ppl like:

          'cesca (italian, expensive)
          northwest ("temporarily closed", evidently)
          isabella's
          josie's

            Go north a little and you'll hit some more spots.
            Neptune Room for seafood, Gennaro's for some Italian/Pasta, Ouest for the prix fixe (if you want to eat early), Dovetail (Sunday is a steal), Mitchell London at Fairway Cafe (good steak, best pancakes on the UWS), Spiga (suprisingly good), Earthen Oven, Zeytin and Pasha.
