Do any of the Jazz or Big Band spots have good food?

Ok....I keep reading about good music spots but most mention not to eat there as the food is not that great. We have a long tour day and am thinking it might just be nice to go eat and listen to some good music. We are jazz and big band fans. Thanks for your help.

Should have mentioned we are staying on the upper west side near 89th street, so would be a plus if it was close to there!! I have read about Swing 46 with dancing....any others with a good dance floor?

Jazz Standard would have to be the best, as it is attached to Blue Smoke.

Many like the food at Ginny's Supper Club.

Do you eat first at Blue Smoke and then go listen to music? OR do they serve you there?

There is no hotel on west 89th st. Please say you're not staying in an illegal apt. rental.

Dizzy's Coca Cola 20 blocks south of you has good food. Smoke is 20 blocks north of you. Don't know about the food.

There's no dancing anywhere else that has jazz.

I'll second NYwhizz and Litsa's recommendations - especially Dizzy's and say you might want to see what kind of programming is going on at Bar Thalia by Symphony space when you are there. Most of the time it won't be Jazz but you never know and when you are willing to leave your neighborhood I would consider Joe's Pub and/or City Winery.
