Recommendations for West 20's.
I would be curious to know what recommendations any of you might have for good/decent restaurants in the lower 20's in Chelsea between 6th and 8th Avenues. Thanks.
You don't specify what type of food you're looking for but off the top of my head, these are the restaurants I like in that area:
Alley's End (most romantic atmosphere)311 E. 17 St., 627-8899
L'Acajou, 53 W. 19 St., 645-1706
Bright Food Shop, 218 8th Ave., 243-4433
Gascogne, 158 8th Ave., 675-6564
Intermezzo, 202 8th, 929-3433
Vox (creative) 168 8th, 646-486-3188
Other good choices:
Red Cat on 10th ave betw 23/24
Tazza on 8th ave at 20th
Chelsea Bistro and Bar on 23rd betw 8/9 (yummy higher end French)
La Luncheonette on 10th ave at hmmm 18th?
Also Cuba Libre on 8th below 23rd
Grand Schezuan Int'l on 9th just above 23rd
Peppe Giallo on 10th just above 23rd - great value
18th and 8th (location obvious)
Le Gamin on 9th below 23rd for crepes
F&B for a quick hot dog and beer on 23rd
Le Petite Abeille on a side street between 6th and 7th near Bed Bath and Beyond
Spice on 8th below 23rd - can't vouch for the "authenticity", but tasty inexpensive Thai
I haven't been in some time, but I have always had wonderful meals in a pleasant setting at La Luncheonette.
