    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

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

    The grilled cheese on gluten free bread and tomato soup is to die for! I finally found my favorite meal in a gluten free variety.

    Great food. Just make sure you're ordering EXACTLY what you're asking for because if something's wrong they won't do anything about it. Old NYC customer service.

    Tasty omelette, but service is very slow. They also included the tip on the bill for a party of 4, eventhough the policy applies only to parties of 5 and more.

    Great gluten free menu options! Had the salmon salad and brussels sprouts. Do not pass up the brussels sprouts! Salad was incredible as well.

    Get their grilled cheese with the tomato soup. Throw a beer on the side. Solid meal every time.

    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.

    Love their brown rice bowl with chicken! Add a little hot sauce and it's unbeatable. The edemame is a nice touch.

    My favs are the Vegetable bowl, turkey chili, and lamb burger. When they have the fried chicken that's really good!

    I really loved the burger: medium, bacon, avocado, Gruyere cheese (!!!) – just perfect
  • Sebas W.
    The food is good. Our waitress was wonderful, but the rest of the personnel did absolutely nothing. Room for improvement.

    Gluten-free choices and a casual vibe on weeknights make this a reliable, low-key dinner option.
  • Chris S.
    Come before 10am on a weekend to beat the brunch rush. Or just tuck in your elbows and wait.

    Salmon Salad and Fish Tacos are my go-tos. For brunch, egg white omelet is better at Sarabeth's.

    On fat days order the BLAT; on best behaviour days order the brown rice bowl. Get it to go and eat on the high line.

    If you're in need of veggies and fiber, the brown rice bowl is an excellent choice (sriracha is available!)
