We're staying on West 77th this weekend and looking for something in the neighborhood, not fancy but good, any kind of food. We'd appreciate suggestions.

  1. Cafe Talluleh Columbus and 71. Amazing cocktails great food. $1 oysters at the bar before 8.

      1. re: thegforceny

        Second Salumeria Rosi--try the salumi platter, porchetta, Brussels sprouts, or tripe. Make a reservation. It's not that big and quite reasonably priced for Manhattan.

      2. Pasha, Turkish restaurant on 71st at Columbus.

            1. re: ipsedixit

              Casa Pomona - terrific tapas bar!

              507 Columbus Ave
              New York, NY 10024
              Phone number (212) 362-3200

            2. We like Cotta. We like jacob's Puckles. We like drinks at Slightly Oliver. We had a pretty good meal (first time) at Social House (plus they have Mother's Milk Stout in draft which is hard to find). We like Arte Cafe. For more casual/lunch, we like Five Napkin Burger.

              1. Red Farm recently opened its second location on Broadway between 76-77. Delicious take on Chinese food--right now it's only opened until 5pm so lunch would be your best bet. Also Mermaid Inn for great fish is on Amsterdam between 87-88.

                1. A few more suggestions:

                  Sushi of Gari
                  Luke's Lobster
                  Momofuku Milk Bar
                  Cafe Luxembourg
                  Grand Sichuan
                  Cafe Pomona
                  Fairway Cafe

                  1. Burke & Wills - newish spot at 79th & Broadway with really nice Aussie-inspired fare (and a speakeasy upstairs).

                    1. Sido, on columbus b/w 72 and 73rd is good for a casual lunch or dinner, middle eastern- i like the foule and mezze assortment

                      1. Thank you, everyone, for the suggestions. They seem spot-on to what we're seeking. It'll be fun to explore.
