Elea is a Greek restaurant on the Upper West Side with a bar area upstairs and a big dining room in the basement, and it’s perfect for a somewhat upscale dinner that isn't too stuffy. Your options range from salads and lamb chops to a whole grilled fish, and you should be sure to start with a few of the dips (such as the hummus). The food is consistently delicious, and reservations are pretty easy to come by, so keep this place in mind for any semi-important dinners you need to plan uptown. Try not to fill up on the complimentary bread.

If you want to sit down and eat a good pizza on the Upper West Side, go to Pizzeria Sirenetta. And try to get there before Happy Hour ends.
