If you live on the Upper West Side, this should be one of your go-to neighborhood Thai spots. There’s a bar up front, and up a flight of stairs in the back you’ll find a dining room with gold light fixtures, comfortable leather chairs, and murals on the walls. The menu has various curries and noodle dishes as well as some less common options like taro samosas and razor clams in coconut milk. Bring a date, or stop by with some friends the next time you want to have a nice sit-down dinner that isn’t too formal.

Momofuku Noodle Bar 2.0 (in the Time Warner Center) still has a downtown feel, and the food is really good.
The Smith Lincoln Center
That's right, another Infatuation review for yet another location of The Smith. Why? Because The Smith is always there when you need it to be. Sometimes for the food. Sometimes for the bathroom. Either way, it's there, and it's good.
Good Enough To Eat
The Upper West Side may not be flush with noteworthy dining out options, but they certainly have one meal on lockdown – brunch. Good Enough To Eat has been an institution up in these parts for a good 30 years, and a spot we'll happily go to for simple, heavy handed home cooking.
