When we go to New York City, we usually stay with his aunt and her husband in Chelsea. They happen to live at the Strand, which Paradis is right around the corner from. When she showed us the store, I was surprised to find that it is a cute little bakery. Somehow I imagined a much bigger chain, like Pret-A-Manger. They don’t cook for themselves and always have great pre-made food in the fridge that we are welcome to eat (a lot of it from Paradis). The first place I check is, of course, the freezer, where she always has gelato from Paradis. The Chocolate Gelato is to die for. It’s so dark, rich, and creamy.

Julian and I just love the Chelsea Market. First of all, it’s really nicely constructed and it’s even fun just to walk through. This time we were on a mission to find some breakfast.
On our way to find some breakfast, we tasted gourmet olive oil and balsalmic vinegars at The Filling Station. Our favorite was the espresso, which was to die for.
When we came back again the next day we wanted to have some gelato. The woman was really rude and said they were not open yet. When we asked what time they opened, she mumbled 10 or 20 minutes. It made me not want to go back to L’Arte del Gelato.
Generally, the market it just a fun place to be. We had food samples, tried on clothes, looked at all the lovely shops, and had breakfast at Sarabeth’s. Next time, I want to try the grilled cheese sandwich at this cheese shop.

This trendy and mildly expensive restaurant is actually good. I had the blueberry ricotta pancakes, which was okay (could have had more ricotta inside) and Julian had the Mac Attack (mac and cheese sampling–the one with the truffles is best!), which was pretty great. The most special thing here is the hot chocolate. Beautiful and delicious!
