The Food was good with large portions, place looked nice and clean, I think it's more of a local NY'ers place than a tourist place. Thats a good thing they know where to go.

Good diner for a late night burger. The burger was excellent with sauteed onions and mushrooms. I opted for waffle fries which were great. Top that with great service! We left very happy.

Do you remember when the UK had great cafes and milk bars? The US has a tradition of diners which, for the most part, have kept that quality, service and individuality so absent from the coffee chains on every corner. Lemon tea wasn't on the...More

Did what it said on the menu but not exceptional. The Westway Diner is better in my opinion. Staff were okay, toilets average.

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
