My Most Favorite to open on West 72nd Street

in the space formerly occupied by Nargila Grill and Dougies. Opening planned for November.
It seems that Prime Grill is also planning to open a bistro on the UWS.

  1. Love Prime - I think it'll be great on the UWS!

    1. Anyone know where the PG location is?

      Do you think that a $65 steak and a $40 lunch can survive on the UWS?

      I think it would be great if it was a different version of that focuses on the customer and the food instead of cranking out huge #'s focusing on turning tables.

      As far as mmfd, I hope its a good dairy option, there hasnt been one with integrity since they closed the Makor kitchen, that place was dairy done right.

      1. Interesting. They started out in the 80's on the East side. It never was as good as the prices, but it was good for a lunch/brunch on a Sunday shopping day. Haven't been to midtown. Is that location closing?

          I don' think so. 72nd street is described as a "branch"

          1. re: cappucino

            in the 80s when very few kosher places really pput any energy into their desserts, they were a novelty, despite the insane prices, specially given how mediocre the menu is

            today, there are lots of places with great desserts, i really dotn see their appeal anymore

              Honestly... I don't see the appeal of MMF. When we were kids, lots of fun to go to a 'fancy' restaurant in the city... now there are better options

              1. re: cheesecake17

                A lot of decent restaurants on 72nd closed over the years - Joseph's, Provi Provi, Dougies, etc etc - it's nice to have an alternative up there.

            2. Will the midtown branch remain open?
