There are many restaurants in the area including on Amsterdam Avenue between 77th and 81st and south of 77th and north of 81st.

I like www.menupages.com to read restaurant reviews and menus. You can search by factors such as location, cuisine, cost.

The area is packed with restaurants - a lot of good ones within walking distance.

It would help if you told us

1)what your price point is
2) what cuisines you like/dislike

Note that if you want to take food out - for a picnic in the park or whatever - you are only a couple of blocks south of Zabar's - an incredible gourmet shop (premade salads and meals to heat, an incredible selection of cheeses, meats, hot and cold premade dishes, wonderful bakery - anything you could want). Esp great selection of lox you won;t find outside NY.

At 78th and Broadway is the non-fancy famous and great La Caridad, the last good Chinese-Cuban place I believe. These restaurants were created by Chinese who had worked in Cuba, probably in restaurants, and the menu is both Chinese and Cuban. It's a place for lunch and to my mind "real," if that appeals to you.

I like to order picadillo with yellow rice, black beans, and fried plantains/platanos. Or rice with chorizo, other stuff same. Or maybe arroz con pollo. As long as you have black ebeans, yellos rice, and platanos, you will be happy. I think they must also have Cuban sandwiches, if you want to be dainty.

Then at 85th and Broadway there's a French Roast, which is a pleasant 24-hour French bistro with a full bar and extremely consistent and reliable food. And really nice for any meal. It's good to keep in mind if you ever think of having a late dinner or drinks or dessert -- or midnight breakfast --like after a show.

Isabella's on 77th and Columbus WONDERFUL. Just 2 blocks from our hotel. Loved it. Highly recommend it. Casual elegance, more on the quite side, good food, out door dining available. On open table if you are a member.....Def. keeper on our list of good restaurants in NYC

There is an Acqua on Amsterdam and 95th - but not the same.
