Whenever I am in the City this is my place to eat. It's intimate. The service is good. The food is excellent, perfect portions. The Location is good. If you are looking for piece and quiet this is not the place for you. Love the music and friendly atmosphere. You can always get the groupon to save a little. No... More

Excellent menu. Hard to decide. My friend and I shared a salad of Arugula, Pear, Bacon, Walnuts, and Gorgonzola Cheese. Followed this with two pasta dishes...one with eggplant and a delicate tomato sauce and the other was stuffed tortolini with a cream sauce. Very good choices..... Service was especially good. I was highly impressed and will return, next time in... More

For an all you can drink week-end brunch with a really funny 1 hour drag queen show, this place is great. The food is o.k. and about $15 p/p. The all you can drink includes champagne, mimisa, bloody mary and bellini's. Theyt keep pouring as long as you need a re-fill. This is $25 p/p additional. The entertainer comes on... More

My wife and I stopped in at the recommendation of a friend. The lunch portions on the Prix Fixe menu were more than substantial and the prices very good, especially for food of this quality. The service was attentive, the wine selection was very good, and the atmosphere was bright. Oh, the dessert was phenomenal also. We really enjoyed our... More

I can echo the experience of the Groupon users here. Once you say you have a Groupon, they know you're not a cash cow. That said, we had an okay experience. We were not told of any limitations to what could order, so we got two of the pricier entrees, the branzino and the lamb, both of which were pretty... More

One of our favorite places for brunch (Gay Brunch) 25$ for 90min bottomless mimosas/ bloody mary or sparkling wine, the food its italian with modern touches. The best part its the music (a little loud) and the shows with drag queens really funny

DO NOT come to this place if you are willing to enjoy any food. If you want a night club which happens to serve food then you are fine. Ridiculously loud music blasting through the speakers. REALLY REALLY LOUD! I suggest you close the restaurant and open it as a night club. You just want to eat ASAP and leave... 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.
