If you think about it, Treadwell Park is sort of like a daycare center for adults. It’s an indoor beer garden with ping pong, pinball, and TVs for watching sports. There are plenty of large picnic-style tables, so if you need a place to meet your summer camp friends on the UES, it’s great for that. It’s also a little nicer and cleaner than your average beer garden, and they serve a ton of German/American bar food. You should, however, expect a crowd if you’re coming at a peak time like brunch.

Mountain Bird is a poultry-focused French bistro in Harlem, run by a Japanese couple. Sound interesting? It is. It's also excellent.
Neil's Coffee Shop
The food at Neil's hasn't changed in half a century, but we're okay with that. This Upper East Side diner is a classic.
