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??
