Albertz Benda, a contemporary art gallery in the heart of Chelsea, is days away from finishing up a show on the most ambitious work of Felipe Pantone.

Morandi, a creation by Keith McNally in 2007, is still bustling like the doors just opened. Situated at the nexus of Charles and Waverly Place, it has a magnetic way of steering people in. The lovely outdoor seating sprawls onto the street creating a beautiful spectacle of Italian Fare.
33 Greenwich is an elegant American style restaurant with an artful nod towards the South. Seasoned restauranteur Danny Volk partnered up with headliner Chef Anne Thornton to deliver southern-inspired flavor to the West Village.
La Sirena is chef Mario Batali’s latest creation in New York since the world renown Eataly. You can find it gracefully perched up on the plaza level of the Maritime Hotel in Chelsea.
