DTUT is several things in one. It’s a coffee shop and a bar, and it’s also a place where you can eat DIY s’mores on couch. If you hate s’mores, however, you can get some chocolate or cheese fondue, and you can also play Scrabble while you eat either of these things. Essentially, this place is an all-day neighborhood clubhouse. It isn’t fancy, but it’s cozy and unpretentious, and, if you live in the area, it can function as your real-life Central Perk. (And if you haven’t seen Friends, you can substitute another reference.)

Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine
In truth, without a basketball court and Walt Clyde Frazier's involvement, we wouldn’t be talking about the Wine and Dine. The space is massive, the layout is clunky, but the food is pretty good. If you're a hoops fan, it's a must visit.
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.

The Penrose is one of several Upper East Side restaurants that are making this neighborhood sort of cool again. Sort of.
The NoMad Bar
Thanks to the prices, this casual(ish) bar in The NoMad hotel probably isn’t a place that you can afford to visit often. But when you do, eat dessert.
Ardesia is first and foremost a wine bar, and a good one at that. The food is decent, but it’s secondary to what they do best, which is selecting excellent “mineral-driven” wines from all over the world.
