Enjoyable meal. Good food. Great service. Very fast despite being 2:45 pm on a Sunday and all tables full. Worth a trip. Good value.

Not only is the place beautiful and in a great location, each dish was something out of the ordinary, extraordinary. Mix of cultures, cuisines, to perfection. Lobster rolls a must, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu here.

We have been there many times and are consistently happy about the food (very good) and the very resonnable prices. This is not a luxury place but this is a great value.

We visited Spice near Union Square and had a good Thai meal, they offer a wide menu and full bar. The restaurant was nicely appointed and offered a quiet atmosphere where it was easy to converse over dinner.

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 City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
