UES Tonight-Fun but Casual
Going to dinner tonight with 2 girlfriends, belated birthday dinner. Can be anywhere from 70's-90's on the east side. Probably btwn $30-$40 a head, we'll probably have some wine. They mentioned Beyoglu ( i like) and Zebu Grill (not in the mood for). Any other recommendations? I'm leaning towards Italian but can be swayed. Want to try something new and yummy. Thanks.
Oh Beyoglu is my favorite. The only thing I miss since moving from the UES.
How about Persepolis? It's not new, but it's always delicious! Uva can be great, too (though I always found it a tad loud).
Or the Italian place at the corner of 81st/2nd ave whose name is escaping me at the moment...
May be too late, but id suggest Canyon road (75th/1st)- upscale (sort of) mexican- great margaritas. Mole duck burrito or casuela are great.
If youre really feeling italian, i like Uva (76th/2nd). interesting italian fare and a good place for girlfriends :)
