Any seriously good food above 100th Street on West Side?
Cuisine type doesn't matter; quality does.
re: rose water
i take it back. 5 and diamond was seriously good when i had dinner there 6 months or so ago. when i had brunch there this weekend, food was seriously lackluster, and the server and bartender obnoxious. you can get much better pancakes, actually served hot, at cafe amrita. i really hope their dinner is better, though the long delay to get our food, which was then served lukewarm, and the grating staff, speak to more systematic problems with the place.
great khao soi at thai market? really? great tip, thanks!
I've been reading raves about Red Rooster, the new Marcus Samuelsson restaurant, but I haven't eaten there myself. If you check it out please report back!

Not alot to choose from, but here is one "seriously" and two maybes: Terrace in the Sky (www.terraceinthesky.com) on the rooftop of a building in the middle of the Columbia campus is worth a look; lunch is better 'cause the view is one of the best in NYC. The two others would be Bistro ten-18 @ hun 10 & Adam (www.bistroten18.com) has interesting specials and, if you like low rent, try Dinosaur (www.dinosaurbarbque.com) @ hun 27 and 12th.

There's not a lot up there, but of the options...
Charles' Pan-Fried Chicken
Amy Ruth's - Charles' is better IMHO, but good for a chicken & waffles brunch, just to get some different chicken now and then instead of going to Charles' every time.
Hudson River Cafe
The Mill (decent Korean, not as good as you'll find in K-Town, but not bad)
...and waaaaay further uptown:
La Casa del Mofongo (I mean, they have 28 different kinds of Mofongo - 'nuff said)
New Leaf Restaurant & Bar (beautiful setting in The Cloisters)
Also, I can't remember the name - but many years ago (so who knows if they still exist) there was a place on 125th, near the Apollo - Caribbean place, on the second floor up a flight of steps - where I had some dynamite turtle soup. Ring any bells for anyone? Torn down and turned into an Old Navy? Wish I remembered the name...

Has anyone tried Zen Palate on 105th (I think), which just opened? Used to love the one on Union Square.
