The Lately is right next door to the Dream Hotel in Chelsea, which means that it’s essentially in the Meatpacking District. For the location, however, it’s a pretty good bar. They make great cocktails, they serve some food, and it’s an attractive space. So if you work in the area, stop by for an early-evening drink. Or if you have to meet some friends around Meatpacking and they all want to go drink $20 vodka sodas at a club down the street, see if they’ll come here instead. There are a couple of couches, a few big booths, and a second floor where you can book a table in advance.

Everyone has a favorite neighborhood sushi spot and, if you live in Chelsea, there’s a good chance yours is Momoya.
A restaurant that only serves bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches. No, this is not a joke. BEC is real, and it's here to cure your hangover.
Sushi Seki Chelsea
The Chelsea Sushi Seki outpost is bigger and badder than the original. Aside from the decor differences, everything appears to be exactly the same.

If you have ever been to Pianos to see a band in the back room, you probably didn't expect that it's the kind of place that would turn out some damn good bar food.
Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken
Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken seems primed and ready to be reproduced and franchised all across the country. Whether that’s the actual plan or not, we have no idea. America could only be so lucky. Watch your back KFC. The Bromberg bros are coming for you.
Bonnie's Grill is a great neighborhood spot with a full menu of divey bar food classics. However, we still need better options for wings in the city, and Bonnie's doesn't quite make the cut.
