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.)

Daniel is a New York City fine dining classic. Save it for a special occasion and eat in the salon, where things are a bit more laid back.
An unexpectedly great Greek restaurant on York Avenue. If we just had a better way to get up here, we'd be here all the time. Who wants to carpool?

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.
