I stopped in for a quick bite and found an amazing place. No fish smells here! The only problem is finding a place to eat. Down the mall is a lounge area (at the big pointing hand) that a chair and table might be available....More

We ordered large lobsters and some sushi. Very fresh and tasty! ... to our big surprise. The overall ambience is like an (European) fish market or supermarket; lots of ice, fresh seafood and busy crowds shopping/eating. Good option for fast lunch! Don’t expect any cosy...More

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

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.
