An Upper West Side man was stabbed and killed late Thursday night outside a Broadway eatery, police said.

Officers responding to a 311 call found Special Anthony Stewart, 24, with stab wounds in his torso in front of La Nueva Victoria Restaurant, on the corner of 95th Street, just before 11 p.m. Emergency medical personnel took Stewart to Mount Sinai Saint Luke's Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police did not say whether they had a suspect and did not respond to inquiries seeking further details on the killing, the year's first within the 24th Precinct, which spans 86th to 110th Streets west of Central Park.

Police said Stewart lived at a West 103rd Street address, but residents at the brownstone in question said he did not.
