The Upper West Side is famous for its two-towered apartment buildings soaring above the canopy of trees lining the West Side of Central Park. The Lincoln Centre is home to the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera and the New York City Ballet. We strongly recommend you book tickets in advance. But don’t worry if you didn’t – you can enjoy jazz and cabaret sessions in the on-site café or visit the American Folk Art Museum for “Free Music Fridays”. Do as the West-siders do and indulge in cinnamon waffles, bacon and eggs, sharp cheeses, Bloody Marys and bagels at any of the excellent brunch bistros that satisfy hungry crowds long after lunch. In the evening dive into top-quality global cuisine represented across town. You’ll find delicate tapas bars and Michelin stars on the upper levels of the Time Warner Centre at Columbus Circle. For a special occasion why not book a table over-looking Central Park, in the Terrace at Jean-Georges, the epitome of fine dining combining French, American and Asian.
