    Just how near are you wanting to be? I'd recommend Gus & Gabriel Gastropub on 79th between Bwy & Amsterdam. Went a couple of weeks ago and fell in love.

      It would be helpful to know what cuisine(s) you prefer, whether you want casual or fancy, and your per person budget for food only (drink, tax & tip additional). That said...

      Bar Boulud is close by. Can't beat the excellent charcuterie. Good salads and delicious desserts as well.

        We're looking for something casual. We don't mind walking a bit. My friend suggested Lansky's Deli. Any good?

          We ended up eating at Lansky's. We shared a Riverside Sandwich, which had pastrami, brisket & cheddar. The sandwich was way too big for me to eat myself. Thinking about the pastrami is making my mouth water. I wish I could have it again for dinner. We also had a potato & a spinach knish, and egg creams. The knishes were so nice & fluffy (the best knish I've had in quite awhile), and the egg creams were well-executed. Everything was great! Service was fast and friendly.
          I would definitely go back.

        Lansky's is one of our favorites! The Kreplah & Matzoh Ball soup are great, as well as the sandwiches. They have a huge sandwich called the jackpot which must contain at least 2 pounds of meat! ( My growing boys loved it).
