Lunch in the Chelsea Market

AndyNYC | Apr 20, 2007 06:00 AM

I love the Chelsea Market - the architecture is incredible and there is always a good vibe in the building. I love to see all the food companies making their food and it's nice to be able to buy retail from them. However, I find there really is no place to get lunch in the building, especially if you want to sit down. There seems to be tons of office workers looking for food at lunch time, but I can never figure out why there aren't more options. I like the Thai place which has a few seats, but more often than not, I find I have to leave the building and go to 8th Avenue to grab a bite. It's not like in midtown where you have a good deli or even Cosi or Pret on every other corner. Am I crazy or is the Chelsea Market like the Grand Central Food Market upstairs but missing a real dining concourse? Any suggestions on what I might be missing and where I should go? Thanks.
