*** Monday Night ALL NIGHT HAPPY HOUR/ Tuesday Night 50% off All Bottles of Wine/ Wednesday Night Build your own prix fixe meal for only $36****<br /><br><br><br />A rising star in New American cuisine, Chef Nick Shipp has earned dozens of rave reviews for his market-driven seasonal specials and his solid menu of top hits. His ability to put an innovative twist on classic bistro dishes made Sophie Gayot admiringly term him, “The Mad Scientist.” At Upper West, Chef Nick’s food takes center stage in the TriBeCa-style loft that blends the sexy girl/boy bar style with a service-driven, popularly priced, contemporary restaurant, and a comfortable all-weather patio.<br /><br><br> <br />Upper West offers a full-service 27-foot bar, a sophisticated beer and wine collection, a long list of tantalizing specialty cocktails, and valet parking for your convenience.

Taste at the Palisades, sister restaurant to Taste on Melrose, now resided just off Sunset Blvd a stones throw from PCH. With its relaxed setting, homey yet sophisticated, the menu offers updated Californian comfort cuisine for eminently moderate prices. The menu, split equally between appetizers and entrees, includes seasonal finds like white truffle mac 'n' cheese, salads and pizzettas. The unusual but simple starter of grilled romaine lettuce topped with gorgonzola, applewood smoked bacon and Granny Smith apples is a must-try. Main-course highlights like Kobe beef burger and crispy parmesan chicken paillard atop garlic potato puree. <br /><br />Taste at the Palisades offers everything that people are looking for in a neighborhood restaurant - namely good food and friendly service.

"Yummy brunch on the patio. My pepper frittata was delicious. Everyone was happy with their order. Only gripe: No pancakes on the kids menu. Our 7-year-old fed the table with her adult-size order of pancakes. That said, we all enjoyed them."
