Very cool Diner not far away from Penn Station and Times Square. Great place to get the Diner experience in the middle of everything. I had Eggs Benedict for breakfast and it was so good! Service was very friendly and came with ice cold water...More

We ate breakfast here 2 of the 3 days. The food was good. The servers were quick, but it was difficult to get a refill on coffee.

This was the first diner I tried in the US, and it was ok I guess. But then I went to IHOP and every other diner faded. You will agree with me, surely. Pros: open even during night hours, very fast service, huge portions, pancakes...More

As fast food goes it wasn't that great but then again who expects great food in a fast food restaurant! The mac and cheese was the best dish and the Brooklyn lager was cool and refreshing. Overall I'd eat there again.

This restaurant is adjacent to the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel which we stayed at, so it was very convenient to eat here at breakfast, or after a late night out and about in the city. Excellent food and service by all staff we encountered.

Went for dinner here and found that the menu on the website wasn’t what was on offer - disappointed initially as I wanted the filet Mignon-but ordered the penne with chicken parmigiana and the shrimp risotto. Both came quickly with good size portions. In fact...More

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
