    Roughly corresponding:
    Levain
    Salumeria Rossi
    Bar Bao/Fatty Crab
    Cafe Ronda
    Earthen Oven
    Zabar's/Arte Around the Corner
    Super Tacos

    The UWS also has its own strengths in Dovetail, George Keeley's, H&H, Barney Greengrass, Gari, etc.

        Coffee - Art of Joe, fairly new on 84th/Columbus
        Ouest - nice established French place on Broadway/84th (?)

        Indian on UWS is generally lousy imo but I've heard Earthen Oven is good.

        Similarly Mexican, though Super Tacos at 96h St subway is good. Cafe Frida is not bad (though not just tacos) and near the AMNH.

          Levain Bakery for best chocolate chip walnut cookies (they're my favorite cookies, much better than City Bakery, IMO) and Grandaisy Bakery for great breads and pizza. Jacques Torres for hot chocolate and chocolates.

          Earthen Oven is a favorite Indian spot worth checking out.

          Never been to Republic or Bar Jamon and not a coffee drinker/taco eater but I'm sure someone will chime in to help out soon!
