RedFarm is the best modern dim sum restaurant in town, and it now has a second location on the Upper West Side. The soup dumplings might not be the most authentic, but that’s not why you come to RedFarm. You come to RedFarm for downtown vibes and creative food. The UWS location is much like the original, but with more space and fewer people trying to get into 1OAK afterward. Try the Pac Man dumplings and the Katz’s pastrami egg roll.

Caffè Storico is little more than a good bet for dinner in the neighborhood or some pre-gaming before you hit the planetarium. Who wants to get drunk and see a laser show?
Crave Fishbar’s second location on the UWS is larger than the original UES spot and works for nearly every situation.
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.

Salt & Fat
We wanted to love Sunnyside's Salt & Fat more than we actually did. Every dish on the menu reads like a carnivore’s delight, and while some items are incredible, others completely miss the mark.
