post-graduation early dinner/late lunch in upper manhattan (west side)
I'm looking for a place on the UWS or even further uptown (graduation ceremony is in Washington Heights) that can accommodate a party of 8-10. The ceremony ends at 3 pm, so the timing is not great. We're thinking we could wait until 5 and have an early dinner, but a place that has continuous service yet is not a diner would be optimal -- if such a place exists. Requirements: delicious food, friendly atmosphere, moderate prices (say, up to $20 for an entree). Any suggestions??
Congratulations to the graduate!
You might want to do a search of this Board. This is a recent post on the UWS. Not sure the restaurants will be far enough uptown for you. Also, www.menupages.com will give you a list by neighborhood and price range which might be a helpful starting point.
I find the reviews on chowhound to be more reliable than comments on menupages or Yelp.
