Found this little place on dining miles and it probably one my best finds. Maybe 20 tables max, so the atmosphere is quiet and the service is great. The chef makes their own sausage and the the short rib (on special) is outstanding. I've eaten...More

Penn Station MSG is surrounded with restaurants, but with a few exceeptions these are more sports bar than true restaurant. Although it was a new name to me, I was fortunate to be introduced to the 90 year old Biricchino last wee. Just a short...More

Small family owned and operated local gem. The food was excellent and most of the pasta is homemade (they will tell you if it isn't). Service was professional but friendly. Gnocchi was the best other than a couple of places in Italy. High quality tiramisu.

Sometimes you want unvarnished, first rate Italian food, not dressed up for the 21st century. If you are in Chelsea, step right in. You will find excellent sausage and charcuterie, delicious bread, good pasta, and on our last visit a polenta and short ribs plate...More

We walked into this restaurant and was impressed. The atmosphere is excellent with a brick wall decor. We sat at a table near the window which is our favorite. The waitress was friendly and the food and drinks were perfect after a long day. I...More

We were given a table for four set comfortably in a corner among the brick decor. Atmosphere was excellent as remembered. The custom sausages were wonderful as was all the food, except for some dryness in a chicken entree. A major highlight was our server,...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
