Stopped in for an early dinner. The place is a bit rough looking but the food was good and plentiful. I had the pulled pork and it was quite good. Nothing fancy here but it's good if you're looking for BBQ.

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

I would call them directly. But it is a great place to have a party and they are close to the subway and MSG. I found it by accident and never regretted the experience. I hope you enjoy it.
