I'm a big stickler for properly cooked, ultra-fresh seafood at oyster bars like this, to the point where even the tiniest thing out of place can bring down the experience for me. At Cull & Pistol, they hit all of the classics just right, and even create new dishes that seem like they've existed forever.

You may be skeptical about a Chelsea Market taco stand, and we were too, but after trying most of the menu (gulps of horchata included), you can color us impressed.
Roots drummer Questlove has lent his signature fried chicken and punctuation mark of choice to Hybird, one of the newest food stalls in Chelsea Market. But dumplings, cupcakes, and slushies come along for the ride as well, in flavors like carrot cake-red curry and truffled egg. Could this WTF-ery be any good? We tried it all to find out.
The Lobster Place is back in Chelsea Market with a full sandwich lineup—some new, some improved.
Pork, prosciutto, provolone, and roasted red peppers. Hot, drippy, and unabashedly porky—a star option at Bowery Eats in Chelsea Market.
Pears and hazelnuts come together in this sweet custard on Giovanni Rana's takeaway menu.
Next time you're in the market for a mortar and pestle, a chopping block, and a tasty sandwich, head to Bowery Kitchen in Chelsea Market. In the middle of it all you'll find a sandwich shop with some worthy options for your lunch.
This pasta to-go comes is generously portioned and all-around a winner, given the high quality homemade pasta and its $8 pricetag.
This is an intensely marbled piece of pastrami that's made with beef navel.
The well-known Italian pasta company has set up a new restaurant and shop in Chelsea Market.
For a sandwich with 'Roast Chicken' in its name, this guy is much more about the gooey cheddar, slightly spicy mayo, and creamy avocado, but we aren't really complaining.
Our lives changed the day we decided to stick some gelato into a kouign amann from two great Soho spots a five minute walk away. It got us thinking: what other great sandwiches could we make around town? And who says an ice cream sandwich must be limited to cookie plus ice cream?
We don't have much in the way of farm-to-freezer ice cream in this city, which is why I'm all the more grateful for Ronnybrook Milk Bar in Chelsea Market.
Tuck Shop is one of those places I can't help but love. Their pies are hearty, satisfying, and cheap enough for an everyday meal. And better yet—even though they specialize in Australian meat pies, they've made an effort to have several vegetarian options on the menu.
For Amy Scherber, it was the loaf that launched her bakery.
We've written about the sandwiches found at the back counter of The Lobster Place—affordable, fresh and flat-out delicious. But we're back today for their prepared salads, which make for a wise lunch option on warm days or for times you feel like eating something light but still flavorful

I often feel that a sandwich without cheese is hardly a sandwich at all. Yet the B.L.A.T. ($10) at Friedman's Lunch won me over because what it lacks in cheese, it makes up for in smoky bacon and creamy avocado.
