Read about this place as being good for kids. Ours was the only one in there but it was a great experience. The food was very good, though I feel like I can't give this a proper review since I didn't order the mussels. The...More

A fair number of the mussels had sand in them. The steak was tough, but unfortunately overcooking wasn't to blame. Even the accompanying arugula was undressed! I held out hope the chocolate soufflé would be good, but it was practically cold. Bottom line, the entire...More

I am so thankful to have this place nearby when visiting friends in Chelsea. Every morning I go down for a delicious latte and a bag of croissant, plain, almond, chocolate to bring back upstairs. Of course they do a lot more, from waffles to...More

I was excited to check out Petite Abeille and I ordered the Rigatoni Mushroom Bolognese ($20). Talk about underwhelming. The sauce and the pasta were not cooked together and it was certainly not handmade pasta. I could have made at home and for a Union...More

Seated promptly. Good food in reasonable portions. Tables a bit small for all the plates etc. The eggs in purgatory seemed like more cheese than egg, a bit much even though we like cheese.

We stopped in unexpected and found this to be just a marvelous breakfast option. The items all have a Belgian style from the eggs to the waffles and desserts. The coffee was just excellent. The staff were attentive and very polite.

Had lunch here with my brother who lives nearby. Great ambience, excellent service and DELICIOUS macaroni and cheese ( with ham)- puts most others TO SHAME! Highly recommend!

My daughter wanted to eat breakfast here for some time and yesterday we finally made it. A nice, quaint restaurant that serves delicious food. The menu is one page with daily specials written on a chalk board. Plenty of selections and variety. The servers were...More

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you
photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant
