Best place for a quick bite with burgers and fries of sweet potato..bar attached and friends had Bloody Mary saying that’s the best in this part of New York. To me freshly squeezed orange juice was good to go with burgers..

Easy place for a quick drink or two. Location is great (Highline and Nearby restaurants). Beer on tap selection is good and tv’s are abundant. Didn’t eat, but nachos looked great.

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
