Located beside the high line, this is a great place for lunch with outside seating on a hot day. Service is great and easy access to and from one of the 'must do's' as a tourist in NYC.

We got off the High Line trail to find food and we found a great place. I had the zucchini fries and a hamburger that was really very good. The service was excellent and the waiters keep the water (and other drinks) coming!

They had great couch tables. The food was solid. The booze was good. The service was also really good. The other plus was it's location near the high line.

Fast and very friendly service. We were accidently in a political discussion with the director of the NYC office of the International Crisis Group. The room was crowded but the service in quality and friendlyness didn't suffer. Burger were greta too!

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
