Highly recommend the steam lobster! The meat is sweet and delicious. Comparing to lobster Alaskan crab legs is just so so. A good thing is that you can try different seafood from the place.

A great seafood eaterie located in Chelsea market. It's not a formal restaurant setting and there are rather food stations with specialist items. The sushi bar is fantastic as is the fresh lobster both of which i would highly recommend.

So fresh and well steamed. Not cheap at all (well, it is lobster).. Had my first lobster experience and it was great. Know that it is a market so you eat standing near a table..

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

This is a seafood restaurant, not a hotel, more like a market with a clam bar and open seating. Very fresh fish and great NE clam chowder. Enjoy.
