Took my husband for his birthday. The place is beautiful. Everyone there is super friendly. The food is well presented and delicious. Wine bottles pricey. Will go again!

We visited Salinas last night for the first time. We will definitely be back. Excellent, friendly service. Terrific wine list. Fabulous food. We had a great corner table in the garden, a perfect place to spend a comfortable summer night. Gracias, Salinas! Well done.

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
