We tried to get our waitress (Patricia) to lighten up but she was very abrupt & downright rude @ times. Didn't check to see if our food or... More

We had a LOVELY dinner at Nick's and Stef's prior to attending the Big East Final Four Tourney at Madison Square Garden. The restaurant was easy to make reservations on Open Table.

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
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 City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
