Restaurant/ Diner suggestions near Hotel Beacon on UWS

Travelling with DH and DS15 & DD 17 and looking for some breakfast/ dinner suggestions near the hotel, not looking for fine dining but NY memorable experience(if that makes sense)?!

Ideally something different to what we would find at home. Who can surprise us with ideas ?

Thanks

Also check out Zabar's, Broadway at 80th. Classic New York place. Build a picnic here or just nibble.

Zabars will also be a great place to bring home food for your room and fridge.

Hopefully you plan on eating some dinners in other neighborhoods as well?

RedFarm! Brand new, 2nd location of a very, very popular downtown place. Sort of modern, upscale, Chinese-American. My two favorite things are the pastrami egg rolls and the spicy crispy beef. Known for their dim sum (ie dumplings) although those get very pricey - the other starters and mains are much better food/$ ratio.

Just posting this makes me want to go this weekend.

Viand Cafe right next to the Beacon is actually an excellent diner. Classic diner menu. Barney Greengrass and Zabar's are absolutely NYC classics with lots of great foods you can't get at home. Barney Greengrass makes an amazing bagel and lox. Gray's Papaya, Red Farm, and Salumeria Rosi also have great NYC favorites as others have mentioned.

..along with Viand.. which is right on the corner from your hotel.. you've got Fairway Market smack across the Street:-) Head upstairs to their café/restaurant and see if you can nab some window seats:-) Other places to consider are Good Enough To Eat as well as Sarabeth's for maybe a bit more memorable.. but Pier 72 right on the corner of West End Ave and 72nd can certainly fit the bill.. around for decades catering to the locals for eons;-) EnJOY!

El Mitote (Columbus at 70th) also a good option for casual Mexican food. Portions are small so good for a mid-day snack.
