Hey, I think you may also want to include The Porterhouse at Fraunces Tavern to your list. I've been there a couple of times and let me tell you I think it's the best bar in NYC. Just imagine you can eat and drink where Jorge Washington was dinning, isn't cool? Check it out at 54 Perl Street.
Editors: Are you saying that there you won't recommend a SINGLE bar on the Upper West Side? Especially after finding two in the wasteland of Midtown West? Wow, that's pretty weak. Maybe you should buy a map.
