We returned to this restaurant multiple times especially because of the delicious crepes. The limited outdoor seating was very much appreciated. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The pasta dish I tried was very good, soup not so much.

I had a small quiche which might have been bought at Costco and my guest had crepe with spinach which was hardly cooked and tasteless Expensive for what it was. Small wine and beer menu. Cosy (overheated) locals place. Come again ? Probably not.

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
