    I really like Marché du Sud (First Ave between 62/63rd) for a light lunch or dinner. The tarte flambées are great.

      Cafe Evergreen near 69th and 1st has decent Chinese. But their dim sum is especially good. Good for delivery, etc. and their wine is decent.

      I lived on 66th/1st for about 8 years until I moved last summer. Here were my standbys:

      Meditarreneo and it's sister restaurant ZaZa - pretty good all-around italian (no pizza at ZaZa), very friendly staff. Meditarreneo is definitely more of a "scene" - corner of 66th/1st Ave. ZaZa is much quieter but there's almost never a wait for a table - 1st Ave/65th St.

      Afgan Kebab House - really delicious kebabs (naturally) but also great apps and the best rice pilaf ever! Also very friendly. BYOB. 2nd Ave/70th St.

      Becky's - mellow neighborhood pub with surprisingly good burgers. Some nights lively, some nights totally dead (which was not a bad thing). 1st Ave/63rd St.

      Bagel Works - really awesome NYC bagels and spreads, made fresh daily. Line goes out the door many mornings. 1st Ave/66th St.

      Maya - gourmet Mexican, chef is Richard Sandoval who owns many other great restaurants in NYC. 1st Ave/64th.

      Cafe Evergreen - agree with previous post, really excellent dim sum Sunday mornings. Better than many places in Chinatown. Other food is okay.

      Tsuki - authentic sushi, fresh and abundant fish choices, great sakes. 1st Ave/74th St.

      Happy eating!
