    Don’t be fooled by the name, this awesome spot in Chelsea Market serves incredible breakfast and dinner. We were amazed by their gluten-free options: sandwiches, pancakes and fried chicken!

    For a more quiet respite in the Chelsea Market, head to Friedman's for sandwiches and more. Those with gluten sensitivities take note: many of these options are gluten free.

    The fresh and market-driven menu features a garden veggie sandwich with hummus, alfalfa sprouts and other veggies, fish tacos, salads and soups. And 95% of the menu can be gluten-free. Read more

    Worth the wait - farm fresh and flavorsome. Brown Rice bowl was simply stunning. How did they make something seemingly so basic, taste so good? Grilled chicken salad was also smoky and charred well.

    Their grilled cheese is one of the best I've had in NY. If you're here for brunch, order their shrimp & grits if they're in season.

    The reuben is amazing.The Southwestern Turkey burger was perfectly cooked, and the patty well seasoned & moist. The tomato soup is one of the best I've tasted. However, the Mac & Cheese can be better

    Whoever left the tip to get it to go and eat on the high line was spot on! Forget the wait to get seated--although it might take a bit of effort to find a seat on the high line.

    Great food, good drinks. Their service can use some improvement though as they made us 15 minutes after being seated to let us order (transition to night menu was their excuse).

    Their fried chicken & cheddar waffles hit the spot! Delicious! If you're opting for something healthier, get their brown rice bowl with salmon:)

    Fancy schmancy comfort food. Was pleasantly surprised @ how good the food was. The pulled pork sandwich w/ apricot BBQ sauce was so good I almost slapped our waiter across the restaurant.

    Are you gluten-free? Then you simply must come here for brunch/lunch and try the Pastrami Hash or the Nova Bunny or the Fried Chicken.
