I should start by saying I'm not usually a fan of sugar cookies, but Eleni's cookies actually taste good enough for me to eat - which is saying something! I always admired the artistry of Eleni's cookies, but only ever bought them as little gifts for other people, because I thought of myself as someone that just does not like sugar cookies. And then one day, I took a bite of one - and things changed! :) They are sweet, of course, but not sickeningly so, and a good consistency - not too soft, but not tooth-breakingly hard.
I'm also not a big fan of Chelsea Market overall - I find it annoyingly cramped, airless, and claustrophobia-inducing - but Eleni's is one of the reasons I continue to go there now and then. Eleni's cookies are available in gift sets at a number of different places in town and across the country (e.g., big department stores), but the Chelsea Market store is worth a visit for its ever-changing selection of single cookies in a zillion creative designs. (They have gift sets too.)
I also have found the Eleni's staff excellent to deal with. The staffers are friendly in the Chelsea Market store, and I have also dealt with their sales office - I recently ordered a batch of custom cookies from them to be shipped out of state for a baby shower I was hosting. The Eleni's personnel were extremely nice and helpful throughout the whole process, and the cookies turned out perfectly. Shower attendees are still talking about how cute AND delicious they were (we had one wrapped cookie at each place setting, and had some attendees scrounging for any extras they could take home! :))!
