UWS, here I come!

Hello all,
I am moving to the UWS (80's and CPW) next week from midtown east, BIG change. Can anyone recommend some great restaurants in the area? I know about Barney Greengrass, Popover Cafe, Good enough to eat, etc for brunch...looking for good places for dinner.

    1. Welcome to the UWS!
      Here are some of my faves -

      Celeste (Italian-Amst betw 84th&85th),
      Gabriellas (fun casual Mexican on Col by 94th)
      Yuki Sushi on Amst and 92nd as well as its sister restaurant Kouzan on Amst and 93rd)

      Kefi (Greek-Col/84th&85th),
      Nice matin (French -79th and Amst)
      La Rural (tiny Argentinian on Amst and 97th)

          In addition to these restaurants, where can I get the best sushi on the UWS?

            Gari, which will be a mere few blocks away.

      1. Not to be forgotten if you're a wine person, landmarc in the time warner building. One of if not the most reasonable priced wine list in the city.
