Quiet, private restaurant in Chelsea area
Last minute help.... I'm looking for a nice restaurant for two in the Chelsea area, where two people can sit and talk close together, for Thursday night. My guest isn't a fan of Asian or Indian cuisine; anything else fine. Thanks so much!
Lots of possibilities, among them Klee Brasserie, Blossom (if you like vegetarian), Trestle on Tenth, Suenos (pan-Latin), La Luncheonette, Gascogne....that should be enough to get yu started.
Trestle on Tenth
242 Tenth Avenue, New York, NY 10001
311 West 17th Street, New York, NY 10011
I am not aware that La Lunchonette (note the correct spelling) is closed. Neither menupages nor Zagat -- both of which are pretty good about keeping on top of these things -- shows it as closed. I just tried to call and got a message indicating that they are open for lunch and dinner every day and offering the opportunity to leave a message to reserve a table.

I second Blossom if you're willing to do vegetarian (although....I thought it was vegan? but maybe I'm wrong..). Either way Blossom food is awesome and nice somewhat romantic ambiance...
I don't know what the reservation situation is like post Michelin star, but Del Posto may be a good bet. Pre-MIchelin star, this was a good restaurant to go to for an intimate meal.
Another possibility is Gascogne. The food is hit or miss, but the atmosphere is absolutely charming.
