There are two locations of Cooper’s Craft & Kitchen in the city. One’s in Chelsea, and the other is in the East Village - and, while the one in the East Village is technically almost the worst, we actually like the one Chelsea. It’s a little smaller, and it feels more like a real neighborhood spot. It’s also nice enough for date (if you grab a table in the back), and it opens at 11am every day. Plus, you’ll always find a lot of good beers on tap here, there’s a decent menu of bar foods, and this place is cleaner and nicer than your average pub.

Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine
In truth, without a basketball court and Walt Clyde Frazier's involvement, we wouldn’t be talking about the Wine and Dine. The space is massive, the layout is clunky, but the food is pretty good. If you're a hoops fan, it's a must visit.
The Penrose is one of several Upper East Side restaurants that are making this neighborhood sort of cool again. Sort of.
The Meatball Shop Chelsea
Reliable, delicious, and full of balls. If there’s not at Meatball Shop near you already, there will be soon. This thing is about to go full Shake Shack.

The NoMad Bar
Thanks to the prices, this casual(ish) bar in The NoMad hotel probably isn’t a place that you can afford to visit often. But when you do, eat dessert.
The Tippler is a big bar beneath Chelsea Market, and it’s the sort of place where you’ll listen to top 40 and talk to a guy in Vineyard Vines.
Your requisite Prohibition-inspired speakeasy in Chelsea with a quirky name and a secret door? That’d be Bathtub Gin.
