Spice is a moderately priced Thai restaurant with a wicked om Yum soup, great Thai fried rice. The Volcano chicken was excellent. Tucked in the heart of Chelsea, this gay-oriented neighborhood attracts a wide cross section of people, gay, straight and everything in between. Fun...More

Not only is the place beautiful and in a great location, each dish was something out of the ordinary, extraordinary. Mix of cultures, cuisines, to perfection. Lobster rolls a must, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu here.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
