Fresh air!

In a city full of unique and interesting places to gather the Frying Pan stands out for its excellent views and clever use of space. Different and memorable without being cheesy. Definitely makes the permanent to-do list.

Defintely eat here. Food was good, wasn't fantastic but the location and ambiance was great. I think some nights they have live music, hate i missed that. We stayed for a good while. Definitely enjoyed our time there. Prices are average compared to other NY restaurants.

I was in NYC for a quick work trip and met up with some friends at the Frying Pan. It was a gorgeous summer night and the ambiance and location of the Frying Pan did not disappoint. The sunset was beautiful and the place was hopping. It was windy so the rocking of the ship did cause a little nausea... More

Located on the water. It is a great place to party on the water and watch people. It is a bit of a tourist trap price wise but very unique place being on a boat.

Came here one night after work with some friends. Really enjoyed the view of lower Manhattan from our seats. It was a pleasant evening. Be sure to have your ID ready before you enter-21 and over. Once you walk in, go straight to the bar where you will order both food and drinks. Not like a traditional restaurant where you're... More

This place is so much fun! Such a cool concept too! On a warm breezy evening this is such a fun place to grab some small bites of food and drinks. It's all self service food and drink. There are bathrooms below deck. Always seems to be a nice crowd there. There are great views and after you leave you... More

Grab a bucket of beers and grab a seat on an old fire ship. Really cool spot to sit in the sun and have a beer. The food is great as well when the full menu is available (peak summer.) The view is great, and sunset is the best time of day to go.

We found this place at the spur of the moment for lunch last Saturday at about 11:30. We sat ourselves at a waterside table on a sunny 70 degree day. The beer and our food was good, although the breeze tended to cool the food of in a hurry. About 1:00 it became very busy. The atmosphere was very festive... More

You know, this place is really pretty cool. Very unique atmosphere and in the summer time, it's a must do. Many people grab pitchers of drinks and sit for hours in the afternoon or evening, but we actually went for lunch. I was skeptical because I thought the food would be pretty terrible given that it doesn't need to be... More

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’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 neighborhood 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.
