We'd been looking for some good Japanese food for lunch and we stumbled across Blue Ginger. The restaurant is in a great location and wasn't too busy when we arrived. The food was delicious and the service was quick and efficient. The sushi is made fresh and definitely worth going just for that. If you're in the area drop in... More

Ordered the 3 roll lunch special and it didn't disappoint. Only thing it came with miso soup and i preferred a green salad. The price was worth it.

Newly renovated place designed with taste, warm atmosphere. We went there with the kids. Had mojito sake and mojito pommegrenate, both excellent and full of character. Sushi was very good- especially the Godzilla and the Black Dragon. Service was attentive and efficient.

We passed this restaurant around 4pm and there was no one in there so was a bit unsure of entering. We returned around 5pm and it was still empty, maybe just the time of day. Anyway we went in and were met by really polite staff. I ordered the Greenwich Roll and the duck, and my partner ordered sashimi and... More

We stopped here for lunch as we were walking to the Whitney Museum. I had the seaweed salad, which was very good, and the chicken satay, which was good but perhaps a little greasy. My husband had sushi which he said was "okay" - probably about on par with what you could get at Whole Foods.

Right off the subway stop in a line of interesting restaurants and shops, the Blue Ginger was a great place to stop for a very reasonable bento box lunch. We were seated right next to the windows flanked by flower boxes and were able to watch the passing parade. The food arrived promptly was tasted great, my son ordered the... More

Dropped in here after the NY Pride parade and discovered excellent sushi. We ordered three rolls and a chicken sate appetizer, and all were fresh, attractive and tasty. One roll took longer than the others, but when it arrived, it was worth the wait (see photo). The Love Roll was as pretty as it was tasty, with thin strips of... More

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’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 neighbourhood 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.
