NEW YORK, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Restaurants north of 96th street are offering specials during May's "Upper West Restaurant Month" sponsored by DNAinfo.com New York and the Columbus Amsterdam Business Improvement District (BID).  This year 15 chic eateries are participating, offering lunch, dinner and drink deals throughout the month as part of a campaign to highlight local food options on the Upper West Side from 96th to 110th Street.

"In the last few years, we've seen a blossoming of excellent new restaurants come to this area," said Peter Arndtsen, district manager for the Columbus Amsterdam BID.  "Nearly every block from 96th street up to 110th has something of interest now, and the range of cuisines offered is spectacular, whether you are in the mood for an upscale bistro, soul food and jazz, award-winning chicken wings, Asian fusion, a Taqueria or a French bakery."
