Pizzeria Sirenetta is a pizza place on the Upper West Side from the same people behind The Mermaid Inn. Each pie here is large enough to feed one person for dinner, and there are also a few pastas and mains (like veal milanese), plus a perfectly good kale salad and a bunch of other small plates. Get a table in the little dining room, or sit on the front patio when they open up their big garage-door windows in the summertime. While this place doesn’t quite crack our top-20 pizza list, you should still be eating here if you live in the neighborhood - and do your best to stop by at Happy Hour, when all the pizzas are $12.50 and a few drinks are discounted as well.

Marea is about as good as upscale eating gets in Midtown, and there’s a lot of that around. Don’t miss the bone marrow and octopus fusilli.
Locanda Vini e Olii
We’d love Locanda Vini e Olii if we lived down the street. But when it comes to traveling this far for dinner, there are probably other restaurants in the area that we’d rather be.

Finally, the kind of restaurant the Upper West Side has long been starved for. The Ribbon has style and substance and does classic food right.
Jacobs Pickles is great if you need a spot for drinks or an Upper West Side dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food. But it’s not a restaurant with traveling for.
The Mermaid Inn
A staple in the Infatuation playbook since back in 2003 when we were standing in line outside of terrible Manhattan night clubs and listening to nothing but Brand New and 50 Cent. The fish here is always fresh and fantastic, and the lobster roll is very solid.
