I just started working in the area of this cozy restaurant...I had never paid much attention to it, as to be honest, its quite small and not much to look at from the outside but once you get in, you won't want to leave. I took my girlfriend here for the first time, a couple of weeks ago, and from the moment we walked in the door, we felt so welcome and taken care of, we would just look at one another every once in a while and smile...the loud and hilarious bartender, the extremely charming owner, the friendly staff and then the food! well, words can't describe. my girlfriend had this mustard chicken, which doesn't sound like much, but wow did she love it and obviously i did too. i had the paella, the spanish rice with seafood and chicken and it was amazing. i would definitely recommend this spot and remind people not to judge a book by its cover.
After reading rave reviews I decided to try the restaurant. Their signature dish is the duck. I really, really don't like duck - or at least the way I've had it prepared so far. I decided to try the duck. It was good ! Crispy on the outside and tender inside. My sis had the steak which was fabulous. Cherries Jubilee wasn't prepared how I expected but turned out to taste wonderful. The service was attentive - just the right amount. We did feel a little rushed towards the end of the meal. This seemed silly to us since half the restaurant was empty. Other than that one hiccup it was great. I am going back next week with some out of town visitors. Try it out! :)
Hmmm. I've heard a lot about the SHARK BAR. I came in to have dinner and some wine. My meal had no order to the appearance as to the way it was placed on my plate. The garnishing were all wrong. The taste was fair. I should have fully enjoyed my meal. The wine was good. My server needs to take several lesson in serving. My bill - for what consisted of my meal - overpriced. But hey, I don't pay then I wear these metal cute cuffs and get escorted downtown. My ice-cream was EXCELLENT. but then again, how can you go wrong with Haagen-Daaz.
If you are in the neighborhood, be sure to give this place a try for lunch. They change their menu daily, or so they tell me. The jerk chicken there was so good, I had to mention it. Juicy, tender and and superb spice blending made it unforgettable. In addition, their dessert selection is broad, so you can keep trying new things and not get bored. In my case, I keep coming back for the brownies. It's a little pricey but you get more. Pamper your taste buds.
I love this restaurant for lunch, easy, great selection and the food is tasty. Go early, they tend to run out of the good stuff if you wait too long. The selections change from time to time so it's good to go back and check out what's new. Staff is pretty friendly, overall. Not fancy but definitely not ordinary.
I'm much more into the intimate and thought out dining experience. This place felt like a vegas buffet and nothing was all that great. I tried about 5 different versions of meat and 2 were flat out disgusting and 2 were just okay. There was one, I believe the tenderloin that was delicious.
This restaurant is simply great! The food is well made, generous portions, tons of dessert choices, and healthy. I can't think of one unkind word to say about Antique Cafe. I love their burgers, big and juicy, it's hard to finish the whole thing. One of my favorite destinations in Chelsea.
I was provided dinner here when I won a trip to New York. I was amazingly impressed. The food right down to the drinking water was excellent. I don't normally eat in these types of places, because of the expense but I would encourage anyone that can afford the place to try it.
great place to bring a nice lady on a date if its a special occasion birthday, anniversary etc.. a little pricey so i wouldn't go regularly but i wish i could. The lobster mac and cheese was great. The only thing i thought couldve been better was the pork belly tater tots.
