Exterior, Interior & Drinks
Pounds & Ounces is located in Chelsea. This bar and restaurant looks like an Art Deco-inspired bar that looks quite handsome, especially when night sets in. The dining area is dark wood with an interesting boxing mural and dotted with two lounge tables with plush leather chairs.
Friedman’s Lunch signage; Interior; Cappuccino and Latte
Friedman’s Lunch is one of the few casual, sit-down restaurants in Chelsea Market. I’ve passed this restaurant myriad of times over the years and always remembered seeing it being bustling during the afternoon hours.

This is one of the rare posts that is SHORT. Yes, I know I usually write Bible-length posts but for once I’m keeping it short because my mind’s getting a bit burnt from writing the articles for Gotham Digest. I’m not complaining. I’m just tired. Also the time lapse from eating here was three weeks [...]
