Our waiter was awesome, never the less I found the menu to be limited. The food was very good but not amazing, same for price /food. We had the chocolat dessert, and I must say that one was awesome.

The beautiful cavernous dining room gives you the impression that you have been transported to an Asian temple. You sit with your group and others at long sleek tables and servants bring you one delightful tray after another of exotic eastern delicacies. The refreshing cocktails...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
