Lunch on Sat.-upper west side

foodie in CT Mar 29, 2012 10:51 AM

Looking for recommendations for lunch on Sat. between Grand Central Station and W.72nd. Open to anything- fine dining, ethnic, etc. Something unique to NY.

      Good list. Two things to note: The Modern Dining Room does not serve lunch on Saturday, but the Bar Room does. Per Se and La Grenouille require jackets.

      Ahh the Modern and Jean Georges, though expensive, are great suggestions.

      I would also suggest:
      - The 79th St Boat Basin (spectacular view but gets very crowded when the weather is nice so plan to get there early)
      - Fairway Cafe (UWS)
      - Fiorello's (the food isn't as good as it used to be in 90's when I ate there as a kid, but if you all wanted to go there for dessert, the profiteroles are excellent :)
      - Island Burger (Midtown)
      - Menchanko- Tei (Ramen, Midtown)
      - Joe's Shanghai (soup dumplings in Midtown, if you don't wanna head all the way to Chinatown)
