UWS - Best Places in 90's and 100's?

Pago77 | Sep 15, 2011 07:05 AM

Hello all...new to the area and wanted to poll the crowd on what the best local haunts are to fill a food fix. As a long time lurker, first time poster, I am confident that this crowd will provide better suggestions than other review sites. We are looking for all spots in the area -- from trucks, dives to "nicer" places. While I understand the urge to recommend places further south (sometimes much further south), we are really only trying to gather spots in the 90's and 100's as we are excited about trying places in the new neighborhood. So far we have tried:

Buceo 95 - so far two very good meals for a local place
A Cafe - love the idea of BYOB, and food was pretty good
Gabriela's - exactly what we thought it would be.
Cafe Frida - we thought it was passable, but not great.

Places people have suggested include:

Gennaro's
Mama Mexico
Community Food & Juice (bit of a hike for a neighborhood spot for us)
Malecon
Pio Pio

Are there others out there that are must tries? Looking for anything delicious...thanks so much!
