Actually upper-upper west side, Manhattan, NYC.
I explored around Broadway from 96th to 110 St. Train #1.
Sal and Carmine: pizza slices. Spinach is very good.
Xi’an Famous Foods: Started in Flushing, Queens and now all over NYC. Cumin lamb noodles or cumin burger is addictive food.
Absolute Bagels: Some of the best bagels in NYC. 108th and Broadway.
Eat a pizza slice at Sal and Carmine, walk up 20 blocks to buy bagels for everyone, then have a beer around there before leaving the area.
