This restaurant is right near my office, and I have eaten here twice, and enjoyed the fixed price lunch menu both times. For $20, you get a soft drink, choice of appetizer, and choice of entrée. The choices will be on the menu board out front. My first visit, I had the Papparadelle carciofi funghi, which is wide fettuccine-type pasta... More

A pleasant local restaurant with some great pasta and a good fixed price menu, with decent choices, at lunchtime. Good service and a broad menu are additional benefits. Would go again if in the neighbourhood.

Stopped here for dinner before a theater show due to recommendations from my in laws. We had a cozy dinner. The staff/management was very attentive. The food was delicious, especially the tiramisu for dessert!

As a Chelsea resident for decades, and recently transplanting to Hell's Kitchen, I'm still constantly drawn back to Chelsea for friends, less frenetic touristy environs, and... Chelsea Ristorante! The owners are always there to greet and check up, the whole staff is charming (they remember you after only a few visits) and you are treated like royalty. The cocktails are... More

Yes the prices are quite high for People from overseas, especially italian ^^ but i tried the linguini with chicken meatballs and it was delicious ! Portions are big enough for two in my opinion. That's why i don't really complain about the price. The waiters were really nice and careful about my needs. They set the price of the... More

We walked a long way down 8th St. window-shopping restaurants and finally decided on the Chelsea Ristorante. The menu and decor was appealing for us - casual and enticing. It was fairly busy. I had a question about a certain cocktail and the waiter had the bar tender come to our table to personally answer any of our questions. The... More

This place has everything you want from a neighborhood spot: busy bar scene, excellent service and food. We were a party of 5 and everyone enjoyed their meal: chicken parmesan, veal picatta, chicken scaloppine with mushrooms, and more. It has an upscale atmosphere but yet relaxed.

On the coldest day yet in NY, I had gifted myself a day at the theater. In between the matinee & the evening performance, I asked the person at the box office the evening theater to recommend a place where I could have a quick bite to eat. She immediately referred me to Chelsea Restorante. What a wonderfully warm &... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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.
