Nice Matin, An Upper West Side Gem

Now that it is cooling down a bit (knock on wood) it is much more appealing to walk around on Sunday afternoon looking for a great neighborhood restaurant to get a late afternoon or early evening dinner (in NYC)

Nice Matin is a fabulous restaurant, with a lovely patio for people watching and nice wine list, on the Upper West Side. If you live here, you no doubt already know this, but if you are going to be in NYC and in the neighborhood, Nice Matin is worth checking out.

Last night was particularly entertaining because there was a street fair going on right in front of the restaurant which made for great people watching. On top of that, there was a fun "law enforcement situation!" The guy at the table next to us, who seemed a little creepy, got arrested! It appeared to be the Feds (FBI) as they were in suits, but we later realized it could have been NYPD Detectives.

Sadly, I missed all of the action when I left the table for a mere couple of minutes. The husband was giddy at the action, even though the wait staff and hostess tried to downplay it, and most of the passersby didn't notice a thing (typical NYC), we thought it made for a great Sunday evening story!

We recommend:
The 5 Napkin Burger with Fries
Chicken Ciabatta Sandwich

College Football Season is upon us meaning the Wilsons will be needing to make some fabulous game day meals. Stay tuned!

Have a great and food filled Week! Cheers The Wilsons
