Suggestions for UES between 90th and 116th Streets
I am traveling to Manhattan soon and staying in a completely different neighborhood this time and ISO meals I can get to easily.
I am very open to different cuisine, though coming from San Francisco there is no shortage of Mexican food where I live. ( More open to Spanish or Puerto Rican flavors) or anything destination worthy up that way… would like to keep the tab no higher than $50 for myself on the high end.
thanks in advance
I frequently go out of my way to hit Patsy's Pizzeria, 1st Av & 117 St. Terrific coal oven pizza, if you like coal oven pizza.
I live in the neighborhood, and here are some places worth checking out:
A-jiao (excellent Szechuan): 2nd between 94th and 95th
Drunken Monkey (Indian and cocktails): 92nd between 1st and 2nd
San Matteo Pizza (excellent brickoven pizza): 2nd and 91st
Ichiro Sushi: 2nd between 87th and 88th
El Paso Taqueria: 97th between Park and Madison
Earl's Beer and Cheese: Park Ave between 97th and 98th
Vinus and Marc (cocktails and small plates): 2nd between 94th and 95th

I love La Corsa Italian restaurant. It's a pizzeria with a nice dining room and an outside patio for nicer weather.
A little bit out of your area is Barawine which is slightly fancy with a very nice bar area and dining room. Creative eclectic menu.
