I'm meeting an old high school friend for dinner Weds. on the UWS and I am clueless about the chow-ish places in the neighborhood. Looking for a casual place -- nothing too, too expensive -- with great food and a place where we may be able to linger as we catch up. She is staying at the Newton Hotel on 93rd and Broadway -- doesn't have to be all that close to the hotel -- anywhere UWS would be fine.
Thanks for your help!
