Chelsea Market

chelseamkt_1I really try to avoid taking my twins out to eat.   It is nothing short of torture for me.  Seriously….it’s like the minute they see that dilapidated cup of crayons and sad coloring placemat coming at them they start to make a scene.  Chelsea Market, on the other hand, is now a destination of mine to eat with the girls on sunny days with the stroller in tow.   I can only describe it as an underground culinary fantasy land and one where I am at complete ease dining with two three-year-olds.   There’s a huge selection of delicious gourmet places to eat – all in a cool and low key setting.  Kids can choose from homeade soup, sandwhiches and pasta and then watch fresh bread being baked, visit a fish market and toss coins into an indoor waterfall.   Even better are the places to grab dessert – Eleni’s cookies, Sarabeths and Fat Witch Brownies.  On the weekends they oftentimes have musical performances for kids so check the schedule and make a morning of it.  And while the weather is still nice grab a coffee and check out the new and ultra-swank Highline where you can sit and watch a parade of New York’s hipsters saunter by.

Thanks for your comments everyone! I am a huge fan of this place. There is also a really great water-park for kids a few blocks away (closed now that summer is clearly over – boo hoo)….
