Washington Heights Restaurant Hits The Heights

My trip to the high reaches of Washington Heights began with a really tip-top dinner at Le Chéile NYC, a relatively new Irish eatery at 839 West 181st Street.

Co-owner Dave Hollander invited me and a friend for scrumptious salads, steak, caramelized brussels sprouts, "mushy peas" (exactly what they sound like), and bananas Foster.

Every bite was a sensation, and the whole experience, in fact, was a revelation.

The two-floor hangout boasts great food, large portions, friendly service, good prices, Irish posters, and a piano.

You don't get any of that below a certain dividing line in Manhattan.

It was well worth the nosebleed and the scary train ride home!
