Restaurant near 69th and Amsterdam
family of four (two teens) from out of town seeking restaurant recs walking distance to 69th and Amsterdam. Looking for moderately priced place with good food where we do not have to dress up. Pomodoro on 70th and Columbus has been a favorite when we visit, but would like to try something else. Any advice appreciated!
Italian - there is a place whose name escapes me, on 71st just east of Columbus on the north side of the street with a nice garden out back... beats Pomodoro for Italian
Sushi - Tenzan Columbus/ 73rd
Bistro - Nice Matin - Amsterdam and 79th
Something nicer - Compass 70th Amsterdam- West End
There are a ton more
You could also try Kefi on 79th b/w Amsterdam and Broadway. Closer to you I would also recommend Epices du Traiteur at 70th b/w Amsterdam and Broadway for reasonably good North African / Mediterranean. And I haven't been, but I've read good things here on CH about La Boite en Bois (68th b/w Columbus and CPW).
