I'd say you have the area covered for your clients, prospects, and those interesting in moving to the area. I could have a blast just checking out the restaurants.

Sheila, Thanks, When you're not in The Berkshires come visit.

Jane, Thanks, There is always something new and hot on UWS.

Jeff, Thanks, I'm sure I missed a few. There are so many.

Gabe, It is quite pricey, lively and loud. They're open Friday nights for pre-paid Shabbat dinner. Their clientele is young, upscale, modern. http://activerain.com/blogsview/2492172/cool-kosher-on-the-upper-west-side
