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.
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.

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).
