Contemporary Italian | Chelsea, Manhattan

Four of us went for lunch on January 15. We shared 3 appetizers, the Cucumbers & Oregano (light, like pickles), Citrus Cured Olives and Herbed Chickpeas (my fave of the three). My vegetarian friend had the Impossible burger (lettuce, tomato, pickle, special sauce and fries) with smoked gouda and said it was amazing. We also ordered two of the Bucatini Ceci e Pepe which was excellent, but my dish, the Tagliatelle with pork skin and garlic chive was insane. I was interested but wasn't sure if I should get it or go with the Avocado Toast or something else, but am so happy I listened to our waiter Jasper's description, because it was THE best thing I ate. It was more of a spicy pork bolognese with scallions on homemade tagliatelle. I also got an egg on top! Insane!!! Go here just for this dish! More

Excellent per usual. I've dined here several times and I have never been disappointed. The food is excellent with great seasonal preparations. The 3-course tasing menu is a great value. The staff is friendly and attentive. Interesting craft cocktails and excellent wine list. I highly recommend Foragers Table. The salted caramel ice create with toasted almonds defies description...it's that good. And it doesn't hurt it's served with chocolate torte. More

Our party of 10 was greeted warmly upon arrival. We had a reservation but were advised we’d have to wait for a while as the place was packed and everyone was watching the football game which wasn’t over for awhile. No biggie. We drank at the bar until our table was ready. The manger updated us often and ensured we were satisfied. Great beer selection and well prepared and presented pub fare. Excellent wings, Brussels sprouts, calamari and poutine. Chicken sandwiches and burgers were spot on. Fab fries too! Would definitely return. Highly recommended! More

Italian | Chelsea, Manhattan

Our Chelsea location is the original Don Giovanni Ristorante and has strived to bring its clientele superb Italian cuisine for over 20 years. We have proudly watched our neighborhood develop around us; from a once barren area to a now thriving dining and culture scene. Don Giovanni Ristorante is set in the heart of the Art District, just steps away from Chelsea Piers, The Highline, and more. Supremely close to all the hottest clubs and lounges, art galleries, music and film studios, a visit to New York City is not complete without a stroll into Don Giovanni’s. Above all, our neighborhood is important to us and we have taken care of our residents for years. We kept our restaurant open during the tragedy of September 11th and also during the 2004 New York City Blackout in order to provide assistance to those affected. We were recognized by Governor Pataki for our relief efforts.More

Discover Chelsea

The premier arts district of NYC, Chelsea’s dining scene is refreshingly low-key—a nice counterpoint to the world-renowned galleries. The nearby High Line has brought more foot traffic to the formerly quiet industrial area, and the influx of energy is reflected in the new crop of restaurants. Get a bite or nosh at one of the buzzing coffee shops or acclaimed tapas spots. For heartier fare, affordable Mexican, messy pulled pork sandos, and raved-about ramen round out the best of the casual options. Good taste isn’t just for the art world, and this downtown neighborhood puts that on full display.
