Awadh makes northern Indian food like slow-cooked meats, kebabs, and biryani cooked in clay pots with naan layered over the top - which alone is worth the trip. This two-story place also has lots of room, and it’s nice enough for a fifth date or a dinner with your grandparents who are visiting from Westchester.

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.
While RedFarm doesn’t deliver the most authentic dim sum experience, it is delivering quality food.
This old school red sauce Southern Italian trattoria has been an UWS neighborhood staple for years. The food is definitely good and very well priced for the area, but the real reason you’re coming to Celeste is to spend some quality time with the owner.
