I'll be coming to NY in July to study and take the NY bar exam, and staying in my friend's empty apartment on the Upper West Side (70th and Amsterdam-ish). I want to make sure that I don't forget what's important in life--i.e., good food. My sister is making reservations at Babbo for post-bar celebration, but I'll need cheaper sustenance pre-bar and would love some recommendations for good, quick food in the area, especially pizza, Vietnamese, Thai, salad, and pastries for when I need to make myself feel better. Oh, and of course, coffee and quiet cafes! Much thanks.
