We stopped in after visiting a local store - about 8pm or so. Wasn't too busy. Food was very tasty and service was prompt. Typical diner fair, good portions, and decently priced for NYC.

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
