We loved the lobster bisque and the scallop and bacon chowder. The soups come in three sizes and there are a range of flavours. They come with oyster crackers and are perfect for a snack (small size) and for lunch (medium or large sizes).

I always have a lobster here when I go to NYC. I recommend the lobster, the clam chowder and the fresh sashimis.

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

It is definitely worth stopping by. An interesting experience. The place is always crowded. The food is fresh, and they offer seafood and fish variety. You can eat there or prder to go.

This is a seafood restaurant, not a hotel, more like a market with a clam bar and open seating. Very fresh fish and great NE clam chowder. Enjoy.
