Good Enough to Eat on the Upper West Side I
f you’re looking for a good down-home meal in New York City then you must check out
Good Enough To Eat on Amsterdam Ave and 83rd street. Here they blend their worldly knowledge of the Big Apple’s cutting edge culinary scene, with the rich traditions of good old-fashioned American comfort food. Esteemed chef Carrie Levin, author of two celebrated cookbooks on traditional American cuisine, founded GETE and continues to serve her tasty dishes there every day.
Whether it’s their famous pancakes and omelet’s off the breakfast menu, the gourmet 8 oz turkey burger they offer during lunch, or the free range chicken that’s a dinnertime staple, Good Enough To Eat is there to deliver a tasty meal with fresh ingredients 7 days a week. They also feature quite a list of brunch cocktails, like their signature bloody mary, and several creative variations on it, like the bloody cab with Bordeaux or the bloody geisha with sake, just to name a few. For those who are looking for something lower in calories, they have plenty of healthy dishes like vegetarian chili, vegan tofu and a whole list of their own signature salads. They also feature a range of specialty menus, many centering around holidays like the roast leg of lamb for Easter, the almond crusted cod for Passover and sliced corn beef for St. Patrick’s Day. Their American style of home cooking in a Manhattan setting is the best of both worlds. The rich flavors of the Deep South exist with an NYC spin, right in the heart of the Upper West Side. It’s perfect for those looking for a good hearty meal at a classic neighborhood spot. Its casual ambience, rustic decor and great traditional American dishes make GETE a favorite for both neighborhood regulars and visitors alike.
For patrons that would like to try and recapture some of GETE’s flavors at home, they have been giving away one of their signature breakfast recipes every week, for all of March on their food blog. So far they’ve shared details on how to make their famous 4-grain pancakes, biscuits with strawberry butter and Belgian waffles. They’ve also shared the recipe for frying potatoes, since all of their fries and chips are made fresh in house, this one’s sure to be a favorite!
