My favourite NYC restaurant is this super cool neighbourhood. Brilliant eclectic music played by a dj in a booth, cool setting, big but great atmosphere with good service and amazing food. Portions are big so don’t over order !!! Will be back again and again

I went there in July for a dinner. Very noise. Impossible to talk each other. The food was good, but not outstanding. The stuff was very rude. I asked to pack up my leftovers, probably they were very small. The waiter gave me a plastic...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

I would call them directly and ask. With a party that size I would think you would want advance reservations anyway.

I think so yes - although we went for dinner & it was jam packed - lunch may be easier but why take a chance
