I am looking for a casual dining spot for dining before

      Ditch Plains on 82nd and Columbus is one of my pre - Beacon faves
      Shake Shack on 77th and Columbus also works
      Both places have some energy, problem at 6:30 on the UWS is a lot of places are too dead

        At 6:30pm on a weeknight, Shake Shack on the UWS is swarming with families and little kids, and is a crowded noisy zoo.

        Fatty Crab has good food, but the noise level and music are awful.
