In New York City, when you find a good restaurant with a great atmosphere, delicious food, and a design that is just right, it becomes a staple that you frequent weekly. Cafe Chelsea has become my Monday date night spot with Mark. It will be your new Pastis or Odeon.
Cafe Chelsea is a chic new French bistro nestled inside the charming and historic Hotel Chelsea. Cafe Chelsea is the brainchild of Sean Macpherson, the owner of Hotel Chelsea, and Charles Seich, the cofounder of Sunday in Brooklyn.
Cafe Chelsea’s charm enticed me within a week of its grand unveiling. The restaurant came highly recommended by a trusted friend and I was quick to secure a reservation.
For those with an appreciation for art, dining here is akin to stepping into a dreamland. With walls adorned with artwork from Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Patti Smith, your eyes will stay captivated.
At the heart of Cafe Chelsea’s allure lies its menu, a curated collection of classic French dishes. When the Team dined here, we were amazed by the flavor profile of the corn ravioli. The harmony between the delicate sweetness of the corn and the richness of vin jaunt, elevated this to be our stand-out dish. Other highlights include the decadent le chocolate fondue and goat cheese puffs.
For a fresh Summer experience, prioritize a visit to Cafe Chelsea. Its welcoming ambiance, exceptional service, and delectable cuisine promise to gratify your senses and leave you thoroughly satisfied.
