The name of the restaurant should give it away. The only thing I felt in this restaurant was rushed. The food was subpar nothing special. AVOID THE COFFEE! It’s your traditional “been in the breakroom for 8 hours” coffee taste.

Right in our hotel, this diner had a great menu, fair prices, good food and great service. Everything we were after, as so many local eateries were expensive and slow. We highly recommend it!

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

It's a big diner, we never needed any reservations, and there was never a wait for a table.
