Restaurants by Sheraton Fourpoints Manhattan Chelsea

Looking for some recommended places by the Fourpoints Sheraton in Chelsea (corner of 7th Ave W 25th Street).

Mainly doing shopping and theatre, but would live to experience some of New York's food offerings.

Will probably be doing Katz's or Carnegie for the deli, and either Murray's Bagels or Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee (pretty close to the hotel as well).

db Bistro Moderne for dinner one night (pre-theatre)

We might try the Tre Dici which seems to be close, but really don't know the neighborhood. There must be plenty of other places close to us, especially a pizzeria (although we may hit up Lombardi's if we decide to make our way to the Village).

A good breakfast place, ethnic, and casual options would be appreciated! Looks to be good sushi all over Manhattan.

And any good food trucks by the hotel?

  1. Corner Cafe on 6th Ave and 24th actually has excellent bagels. Crispy outside, chewy inside. No special ambience or history.

    Co (Company) at 24th and ninth is a great place for pizza. The prix fixe Indian lunch at Junoon on 24th between 5th and 6th is excellent and affordable, get's pricey at dinner. For Chinese, check out Legend on 7th Ave at 15th Street. Grab an Italian sandwich at Salumeria Biellese at 29th St, they make their own cured meats.

      Thanks - any good bakeries near the hotel?

      And is the Shake Shack worth it? Anything comparable nearby?

      1. re: ybnormal

        Bakeries for sweet items? Or bread?

        La Maison du Macaron has good French pastries (croissants, madeleines, macarons). There's also Big Booty Bread Company, Billy's Bakery (they are known for their cupcakes which I think are OK but not the best), and a little further is La Bergamote. In the Chelsea Market there is Amy's Bread, Fat Witch, Eleni's, Sarabeth's....

        I have heard good things about the burgers at RUB BBQ but haven't tried. I personally think Shake Shack is great, but I have a high tolerance for lines.

        Agree that Co. is a great choice. Right across the street is Grand Sichuan, which is a great choice for spicy Sichuan; Legends, a bit further south, is a recent chowhound favorite. Would definitely recommend against Lombardi's--though it's not bad, it's not worth going out of your way for, and there are much better pizza options around (including Co. and Keste, among others).

        1. re: rose water

          Second Company aka Co. and Grand Sichuan.

          Also in that area is Txikito and El Quinto Pino for authentic Basque food.

      3. For weekday breakfast and weekend brunch, check out Cookshop or the Breslin in the Ace Hotel.

        The Ace Hotel also has Stumptown Coffee with pastries from the Breslin. See also Cafe Grumpy and Joe the Art of Coffee, both will have some form of pastries.

        Lombardi's ain't what it used to be and it's in Nolita, not really the Village.

        Hill Country (Texas style BBQ, get the brisket or the pork ribs) and Hill Country Chicken (fried chicken) are both nearby and not terribly expensive.

        1. re: kathryn

          Actually I had Breslin as a possibility...what's good for brunch there?

          Co. for pizza sounds great! Scratching Lombardi's off.

          We may make it over to the Chelsea Market as well.

          And for me, bakeries means sweets and pastries! La Maison du Macaron is exactly what I'm looking for! Not sure about cheesecake yet, but any cookies around? Not sure if we'll make it to Levain Bakery.

          1. re: ybnormal

            The baked eggs with chorizo & tomato, the three cheese grilled cheese sandwich with ham, the full English breakfast, and make sure to ask whatever the specials are. The lamb burger is mighty tasty as well and comes with thrice fried fries which I find to be absolutely perfect. Oh, and the cocktails are quite nice.

            Jacques Torres Chocolates in the Chelsea market has pretty famous and delicious chocolate chip cookies. I also like the peanut ones and chocolate ones at City Bakery (not so much the chocolate chip). City Bakery is also known for their pretzel croissants (salty and buttery) and I like their scones, bacon biscuit, and their "baker's muffin" as well, a mishmash of other pastry left overs. Both JT and CB are known for their hot chocolate as well. City Bakery also has huge marshmallows and the chocolate is super thick. Bit of a coma in a cup, really, but tasty.

        2. For quick breakfast or lunch bites to go -- pastries, sandwiches, salads -- Blue Dog Cafe, on 25th between 6th and 7th, is an excellent option.

          Shake Shack is worth it not because they offer the best burger you'll ever have (although they are tasty), but because Madison Square Park is a beautiful oasis in which to sit and enjoy your food. (Though this jaded New Yorker won't go if the line is more than 10 or 15 minutes long.)

          I'm a big fan of Co. pizza. One option, if the weather is nice, is to get a pizza (or two) to go and take it over to the beautiful new park along the Hudson River. The pizza will no longer be hot by the time you walk the few blocks, but that has never diminished our love for Co. pizza!

            Thanks for this - sometimes we forget about sitting in a park just to enjoy the food and people-watch.

            Is Johny's Luncheonette a hole-in-the-wall worth going to? Looks like it is just down the block from the hotel, and I've seen some positive vibes about it.

          2. We really liked Giorgio's of Gramercy, on 21st. Great food, amazing service.

            Second on Hill Country. We haven't done their chicken place yet, but have walked in and it's very tempting
