Not my first visit but wanted to give an updated review as this place is amazing. The food, the service and the atmosphere is second to none. They even gave us a free Dessert as we were celebrating a birthday. Open a branch in London!!!

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
