The Ellington (UWS)


  •  Why it’s worth it: If you’re looking for a satisfying, familiar and affordable spot on the Upper West Side for a meal, The Ellington is your answer. The menu is a mash-up of classic British and American bar food and is truly enjoyable.
  • Vibe/Layout:  “You’ve got to find some way of saying it without saying it,” reads a Duke (as in Ellington) quote on the wall, and the space communicates an unassuming warmth through its wooden chairs and “country kitchen” paneling. The 60-seat den includes a 12-seat bar and carries a rustic feel with whitewashed barnwood walls, oxidized tin ceilings and large antique mirrors. The floor-to-ceiling windows open in warm weather, making this a go-to spot in the spring and summer.
  • Ideal meal: Grilled cheese bites (with tomato basil dipping sauce) ($8) and the Ellington burger ($12)
  • Address: UWS, 936 Amsterdam Avenue (at 106 St)
  • Prices: $8-$25
