The food is always on point and the service is excellent. Great place for business meetings as well as good for casual with friends. The buratta is by far my favorite dish.

This area has few recommendable restaurants. This one has traditional Italian food, but it its ear breaking noisy, mostly around Happy Hour, so sit outside if it is warm enough. The adffogato, ice cream drizzled with expresso, is very tasty.

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

Yes, there is a bar but it does get very busy. Difficult to get a seat in the evening. They do serve food at the bar.
