there's a cafe on 84 between 2 and 1 that has a nice and quiet back patio-ish space. Didn't even realize it was there until a few weeks ago.

I know the one - inside a Chinese antique/furniture store, right?  Serve Stumptown coffee?

post #6319 of 11754
yea, i have no idea what's up with the furniture part. it was a little alarming to walk down those stairs at first. the outdoor space is nice (when you said "oasis", for some reason i thought of that space, even though it's certainly not an oasis)

I do like that place and it did strike me as completely at odds with the typical UES cafes.   It has a downtown vibe.

 

I wonder why there aren't more downtown restaurateurs looking at this massive area of town and realizing the opportunity here if you can serve good food in a non-shitty environment with a decent vibe and decor.

Good Food in a Non-Shitty Environment with a Decent Vibe and Decor is a great name for a restaurant.

Agree with this sentiment from when I used to live near the 1st ave stop.

I generally am bitter towards people who get on a first ave in the morning. Just fucking walk to Union Square.

I agree with this.

I guess it's ok if you're taking it all the way to 8th...

lefty, just think of SanFo, and you'll immediately feel better.
post #6327 of 11754

During dinner the leftette and I were reminiscing about what we miss about SanFo. We got up to two - the weather and that it only takes minutes to get out.
