Chelsea recs?

geg5150 | May 16, 2007 12:44 PM

Hi y'all, we'll be in Manhattan for my bf's birthday June 15-17. We're staying in Chelsea at W 24th and 6th Ave.

We're not morning people, so we can probably figure out b'fast with a coffee place and bagels or something like that. Unless there's something spectacular close by.

We went to Balthazar in Soho when we were in town last month and loved it.

We're trying to stick to less "super" touristy areas, no Little Italy, Chinatown, Times Square, etc. That's why we're staying in Chelsea. We'd like to explore that area alot. BF also wants to explore Greenwich Village. Any other suggestions?

We like ethnic food...not Mexican probably, as we recently moved to VA from Phoenix, and we can get plenty of good Mex when we're in Phx. We like pretty much all Asian, Indian, African, etc., and we're open to other things.

What can you tell me about Tia Pol for tapas.

We also love BYOB, any good suggestions for that?

We'll take recs for lunch, dinner and must try snacks! We both love dessert and it's always fun to walk from dinner to the next place for dessert and drinks.

We're looking for places that won't be over run with tourists. We're willing to spend $100 to $150 for dinner with drinks, but I'd prefer not to and spread the wealth around for the other meals.

Thanks so much in advance for your help.
