Restaurant Recommendation for UWS?

I am meeting family on the UWS in the 70s or lower 80s for dinner on Wednesday, only since they just moved to that area, and we have no idea for a good, reasonably-priced restaurant.. Any and every suggestion is welcomed! (Any type of cuisine is fine..)

  1. Reasonably priced is also subject to a great deal of interpretation. Some of my favorites include Pasha (Turkish; inexpensive pre-theatre pre-fixe), Kefi (Greek, cash only, no reservations, so maybe not the best for a group; also call to see whether it has moved, yet), Spiga (new Italian), Ouest (French), and Dovetail (new American, I guess). Many people really like Nice Matin.

    There have been many similar threads recently, so it may behoove you to do a search, Andrea.

      Most of those above are not reasonably priced. Try Zeytin(Turkish) or Nonna(Italian) at 84th and Columbus or Bistro Citron(French) at 83rd and Columbus. Further South on Columbus at 79th I think, you might try Ocean. It's a BR Guest Restaurant with pretty good food.

        Dovetail is not reasonably priced as OP requested. Most entrees are $20 - $30 and tasting menu is $70. We went for the first time Saturday night.

      2. Hi

        I usually post on the Toronto-Canada board, but I lived on the UWS while working in Manhattan for about 5 years (I just moved back to Toronto about a year ago)

        I second the recommendation for Ocean - very reasonable - mains about $25 and good sized portions. Food and atmosphere quite good

        Ouest is fantastic, but a little higher price point than Ocean

        If you like Thai, Land Thai Kitchen was fantastic, and very reasonable. No reservations taken

        Have fun
