Before asking for something, take your time and go to the end of the shop and see how beautiful the lobsters, fishes, schrimps and shells are presented, and what the persons are eating. Pay attention on the soups side and... More

We stumbled across the Chelsea market and were pleased when we came across fresh lobster and a little sushi bar. The atmosphere is relaxed and we sat at the sushi counter. The sushi is expensive but it definitely was the best tasting I've ever had. We tried some sea urchin and quail egg sushi, it was delicious! We then tried... More

The lobster roll is delicious and has a great bread/filling ratio. Their chowders are a great complement to it. There isn't much seating, so be prepared to either stand or take it away. I wish I lived near Chelsea market.
