Chelsea rec's-thanks

Following a "suggestions" post, I just spent a week working, staying, and eating in Chelsea, and want to thank all who took a moment to suggest. Quick capsule summary:
Royal Siam- perfectly good, nothing special
Red Cat- enjoyable, if a bit pricey- tempura Gr. beans stood out... Le Zie- excellent and excellent value. I was crushed to find that "trofie" was no longer being served[ a long time ligurian favorite of mine] but the "pici" w/ favas artichokes and asparagus saved the day.This trip's "find."
Bright Food- OK but less than its reviews
Basil- pretty place, pretty food, WAY over priced entrees
El Cid- an enjoyable, quality tapas bar... soooo crowded
Outside Chelsea-old favorites still good...
Mirchi- delicious, non-standard Indian but for some reason, service for a Sunday lunch was almost non-existant and there were only a 1/2 dozen occupied tables. Breads/Tablas-still great, still $$.
Saigon Grill- this time their East Side location... still great, still amazingly cheap for the location{s}Thanks to all...
