I recently dined at lunch time at NorthWest, a lively, upscale Italian restaurant just opposite the American Museum of Natural History and very close to Lincoln Center, on Manhattan's trendy West Side. I was joined by Robert Abrams, Publisher of ExploreDance.com and Alcintha Johnson, new Manager of a Commerce Bank at Second Avenue at 77th Street. We chose the upstairs space, which is decorated with photos by Brian Hamill and gazed at fascinating, black-white images of John Lennon and Mohammed Ali.
For appetizers, we chose spicy crab cakes, arugula and glazed pear salad, and grilled seafood. For entrees, we chose dill crusted salmon, steamed mussels in white wine, and cobb salad with bacon. Our coffee and tea were served in French Press fashion. Matt, the owner, is always on hand to welcome guests, and, in the warm weather-to-come, Matt will add tables outdoors for sidewalk dining.
For a relaxing and refreshing end to a long day, be sure to visit NorthWest, and tell them you saw them on RobertaOnTheArts.com.
