Hi everyone! We visit the UWS about 1-2 times per month and stay in the West 70's. For random reasons (locations of friends, families, parks for kids, etc), almost all the food and restaurants we sample fall between West 70 and West 90 or so and, in no surprise to anyone here, we've been very underwhelmed. Sadly, I find little of the fare is any better than we have available to us in the New England Providence/Boston region.
So, we've realized we haven't explored the southern aspect of the neighborhood that much, and have little dining familiarity with W50-70. I was wondering if everyone could recommend their favorite everything. Take out, Indian, Chinese, Thai, Sushi, Date Night, Italian, really anything that you feel is the very most special of this area and might rise above the 70-90 mediocrity.
