The Upper West Side’s Dagon, located at 2454 Broadway at 91st Street, has gotten a whole lot of love from the press since it opened on Valentine’s Day.
Most recently, the Israeli and Mediterranean restaurant was featured by Eater in its “Best Dishes” series, published on November 1. The dish Eater highlighted was Dagon’s chicken liver mousse for $10, which it described as “smooth and creamy” with “date syrup pooled in the bottom of the serving bowl.”
In our own “best new restaurant poll” from April, the Mediterranean restaurant got 62 5-star reviews, the most out of the restaurants we included.
Also in April, Steve Cuozzo of the New York Post called Dagon “the city’s best new restaurant to arise out of the pandemic and my favorite new Upper West Side place since the millennium.”
Dagon has also been included in “best new restaurant” lists by Time Out New York, and in Thrillist‘s list of “Everywhere You Need to Eat in NYC Right Now.”
You get the point. But what are your thoughts? Is this the Upper West Side’s best new restaurant? Comment below!
A group of us went to Dagon a few weeks ago. It was great. The food was marvelous, the service was wonderful, and we all had a really good time. Highly recommended.
Ate here last night. Loved every bite. Will be back…SOON
I tried repeatedly to order out, either picking it up myself or seeking delivery. I am unwilling during the pandemic to eat inside any restaurant. They offer neither option.
