When you can’t muster the motivation to trek to Brooklyn, but still want to feel like you're having a rustic meal at a wooden table set with Mason jars, Flat Top in Morningside Heights has you covered. This cozy corner bistro nestled above Columbia’s campus is like a Cobble Hill transplant, sporting stylish décor and a global menu that offers everything from grilled Branzino and an organic burger to Scottish salmon and a three-mushroom risotto. And that’s just dinner. Brunch is brimming with plates like blueberry/buttermilk/ricotta pancakes, Maine lobster roll, and shrimp & grits, all paired with Stumptown Coffee.
