Restaurants in or near Chelsea

My friend and I are going to NY during Veteran's Day weekend and staying with a friend in Chelsea. We are looking for some good restaurants to eat at in the area or elsewhere if easily accessible by public transportation. We're up for anything besides Italian or Sushi and we're looking for a dining experience different than what we would get in Boston. Our budget for dinner is $20-30 not including drinks. Any suggestions? We're also looking for specialty food shops in the area.

  1. Cafeteria is an inexpensive option in Chelsea. It is tradional american/comfort food, in a trendy environment. It is located on 18th and 7th Ave. A great stand-by for late night dining.

    Specialty food shops...head to the Chelsea Market on 9th Ave.

    1. hows about jamaican at NEGRIL on w23rd? bonus - they have a 2-4-1 happy hour on all drinks. spanish tapas? try TIA POL or EL CID.

      for food markets try BALDUCCIS or as mentioned the CHELSEA MARKET. also, there is a british grocery just down in the west village called MYERS OF KESWICK.

      1. Red Cat (23rd st and 10th Ave)

        Omai (19th St and 9th Ave)

          1. I just moved out of Chelsea a month ago. I always enjoyed Le Singe Vert on 7th and 18th. It's a French bistro. They cram people in and the music is too loud, but it's great for mussels, steak frites and other tasty things. I also second Red Cat. And for breakfast, Murray's Bagels on 8th btwn 22nd and 23rd (though it's tough to get a table).
