Celeste on Amsterdam Ave between 84th and 85th St. The restaurant is a neighborhood institution and always packed. It's' on the casual side and reasonably priced. No reservations and cash only.

Another vote for Telepan, one of the city's best farm-to-table restaurants; I like Nice Matin too. Also excellent, but more expensive, are Daniel Boulud's two places across from Lincoln Center, Boulud Sud and Bar Boulud.

I love The Lincoln - when we were there last they had a mix and match negroni bar. If you sit at the bar, you have a beautiful view out of the big glass windows. Also, for more casual bistro fare, Cafe Luxembourg is also fantastic.

The Boathouse in Central Park. Food is average but it is a *very* pretty place. Don't go on a Saturday or Sunday... wait times are too long.
