Was talking with a fellow UES'er about how many truly destination-worthy places we have here. Just the beginning of a list, and surely am stretching it to consider some of these places true destination spots....
Any others to add? I've surely left out many -- it's just a start.
My friend's main gripe was that there aren't a lot of hip places catering to a younger crowd, and few, if any, great ethnic places, besides French and Italian (and Gari).
Sushi of Gari
david burke & donatella
The Regency -- jazz
Scores (a favorite of my male friend)
Agata & Valentina
Eli's -- (yes, ridiculously priced)
