Took my employees there for lunch. Food was great and very reasonably priced. The staff was attentive without being pushy.

My girlfriend and I were looking for a good Italian spot without having to go too far from the apartment we were staying in in Chelsea. The place is small and busy, but there is a GORGEOUS garden terrace on the back. We didn't end...More

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
