Okay, so it was number 20.  But hopefully they weren’t ordered by quality.  And in the short time that it’s been open, it is already considered one of the best restaurants on the Upper West Side.

Marlow Bistro, located at 1018 Amsterdam Avenue, will surely bring lots of new foodies to the neighborhood now that they’ve made this prestigious list (I’m linking Eater’s original post at the end of this article!). And, it’s already an Instagram-famous NYC restaurant!

New Food on the Upper West Side

Posted by on Jan 29, 2015 in Asian, Food & Drink, Healthy, Mediterranean

We’ve had a bunch of exciting restaurant openings in the past few months, and we’ve gotten a chance to check them out: Earth Cafe, Sugarcane, the new uptown Halal guys, and our own branch of Parm! Here’s an early word on how they’ve been.

I was surprised by the warm, buttery smell inside the Earth Cafe at 97th and Broadway, which specializes in coffee and espresso drinks and a variety of homemade sweet or savoury pastries likes croissants and quiche. Although they smelled amazing, I stopped by just for a cup of regular coffee, and it was very good. They also have a variety of milk options, a chill atmosphere, and they let people hang out. I definitely plan to stop by for a snack soon, and it’s a great close place to just read, away from home distractions.

Red Stone’s story started over 10 years ago here in the heart of New York City. After a long career developing brands and concepts for other ‘fast food’ companies, owners Tony Tertiropoulos (born and raised in Greece) and Vera Giannaris (Manhattan native) realized that too much time was invested in expanding quickly and not enough on serving quality food to the community. They wanted a place where they could feed their own kids without feeling guilty, and so, they embarked on a mission to take their time and prepare real, home-cooked and healthy food for their neighbors.
