When we were visiting NYC a few months ago, our friend Matt brought us to The Park in Chelsea with the coolest decor! The restaurant/lounge has five unique spaces. Starting on the first floor is the main dining area with a fun retro design. Behind the restaurant is a warm, red speakeasy with funky chairs and lanterns hung from the ceiling. Walk out to the beautiful indoor garden where we sat to eat lunch. By the garden is the atrium where you can enjoy the fireplace and feel the sun gleaming in through the glass ceiling. Head on upstairs to the penthouse and sip on a cocktail while enjoying the view of the High Line.
My pasta and brussel sprouts were scrumptious, but the sandwich was a little dry. But I really enjoyed being in the space while no one was in there. And you should definitely check it out at night! It's bustling with urbanites and the space is filled with great music!
