Need idea for restaurant very close to 92nd Street Y
Looking for a casual/inexpensive (for the area) restaurant where I could get a good burger plate etc. Coming in from Brooklyn for an 8PM lecture so proximity to Y is important-thanks!
we've put together a Google map pointing to places of interest around the 92Y. You can see that here: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&...
Sfoglia Restaurant is indeed fantastic. The map also includes some places that serve great hamburgers if you really had your heart set on one.
What a minute! Kinsale one of cities (imho) finest Irish pubs is nary a block away on Third Ave & 94th. Their super burger rivals many of the best and is a truly great deal at $6.95 when some get $20 for a burger these days. I'd also argue that their shepards pies is the about best I've ever had. The lamb chop plate is also a deal with 2 sides for the money. Family and sports friendly and no pretentions, that's why I say Kinsale hard to beat on the UES for casual dining.
I heartily concur with MMRuth about Ottomanelli. For price, quality, and convenience to the 92Y the cannot be beat. The basic half pound steak burger is only $5.95...add their excellent waffle fries and a couple of toppings and you're still well under $10. Great burgers, not surprising considering they are first and foremost butchers.
