I think the cafe is best for breakfast, others like the steak dinners. Regardless, its a good medium priced place. I will admit it has lost some charm with the departure of Mitchell London who ruled the roost from a table in the front. Still,...More

OK, this is not a fancy place, but it's a great place for a laid-back lunch or dinner in a non-touristy environment. Fairway has good pizzas, pastas and burgers. I especially like to have a plate of pasta and glass of wine on a cold...More

Better for dinner than brunch, IMO. Laid back atmosphere favored by locals, reasonable prices, and dishes properly prepared. If you ask for medium rare, you'll get medium rare. Nearby coffee shops (Viand, New Wave, Cafe82) do a better job with brunch.

On a recent trip, while staying across the street at the Hotel Beacon, we stumbled across this café above the Fairway. Light and airy, with terrific service and a good menu, the Café became our breakfast place of choice. Saw lots of locals and few...More

Ok, it's a café above a busy supermarket and will not have a great ambiance. But the place is spotless and the service quick. The food is simple and in manageable proportions. Too many New York Cafes seem to serve huge and calorie loaded portions....More

You might not expect a supermarket's second floor cafe, situated, right near the organic veggie bins, to be top notch. But this one will surprise.So the ambience might not excite, the plain sit down 2x2 tables might not impress and the bustling atmosphere might not...More

After doing a bit of grocery shopping, we went upstairs for dinner. We both had the Angus beef hamburger which was excellent. The hamburger was perfectly prepared; the Cole slaw was delicious and the garnishes were served on a separate plate for the hamburger. The...More

Another must on the upper west side! We always eat here when we shop in the fabulous supermarket downstairs. Probably no tourists here; it is a New Yorkers' place. Great for breakfast, lunch, never tried dinner. I would not rate the food gourmet, but rather...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

Yes. I had a terrific cabernet recommended by my server. I'm not sure what else they offer. My guess though is they serve what they sell in the market below.

This was actually my question. I ordered the pizza prior to getting an answer. It was almost flatbread with very fresh toppings and the size was right for two to share.
