Dinner tomorrow in meatpacking/chelsea area
If you like italian, there is one brand new restaurant right next to buddakan at chelsea market, they opened a week ago.
It's called Giovanni Rana, I went last sunday for brunch and we really loved it.
True, simple, authentic italian dishes and the most expensive entree is 25$.
The ambience is nice, rustic in a nice "chelsea market" way. Great appetizers and pastas.
It all tastes 100% italian.
