It's no Village or Williamsburg, it's no Times Square or Coney Island, but the Upper West side is dear to (some) of our hearts. With less tourist and business traffic, the only time it's not quiet is when Columbia starts raging (and even then it's no huge party). Because of this, besides those who live or have lived here, no other New Yorker dares to find the hidden gems the Upper West side holds. Too bad, y'all are missing out. But because we are nice folks, I guess we'll give you the scoop on some of the best restaurants and bars the Upper "Best" side has to offer. You're welcome.
