        This is pretty much a good list. The only addition I would make is Gotham Pizza. I like their Margarita slice.

        Szechuan Chalet and Wa jeal are both very good as long as you stick to the Szechuan dishes. I am afraid there is not much that is above average beyond szechuan

        1. re: MVNYC

          due to love here on CH i keep trying SC, but as of yet it has never lived up to the quality of WJ

          i also have no love for patsy's, finding even the east harlem original to be hit or miss, at best

          1. re: thew

            I think Wa Jeal is better, but the Chalet is pretty good too. You just need to navigate the menu carefully there.

          Lili's Noodles is just a BCH over your gheto chinese take out.

          1. re: Stuartmc910

            i only eat their buns, dumplings, and noodle soups - which are all good

            1. re: thew

              Smart! Their "main" courses are awful.

          ITALIAN VILLAGE

            szechuan kitchen, in its original space on 77th st was one of the 1st szechuan places in the country

          2. Shun Lee Palace is still pretty good too for Chinese. Not the best and on the expensive side (depending on how you define neighborhood restaurant), but pretty good for UES.

            1. patsy's for pizza and red sauce italian cheap and off the wall great plain pies
              1st and 118
