Two of us ordered lunch here: salad for me and lasagna for family member. Both ok. Busy place. Huge menu. Large portions. Friendly waitress. But don't expect clean bathrooms or clean surfaces/benches/tables.

Passed by this diner every day on the way to the convention centre, day 2 onwards I went in to eat. Great selection of dishes to choose from, friendly and fast service and I kept going back.

We were not looking for any gourmet food; just good diner food. Lovely server. Portions generous and food adequate. Fast service and reasonable. For the Penn Station area, it was fine.

This diner has most of the food basics. I had the huevos rancheros for one meal. The sauce was tasty and it felt very southern for breakfast. The other meals are pretty basic. We even had a bagel here. You can do better for bagels...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
