chelsea market.

chelsea market is in a building that was an old factory turned office buildings/indoor market at street level. there are several great food places like lobster place, jacques torres chocolates, l'arte del gelato, buonitalia, sarahbeth's, et cetera... as well as many places to shop like bowery kitchen supply and posman books and anthropologie.

the market is on W 15th and 9th Ave... so a little "out of the way" for most- but totally worth it. it feels a little magical and a lot welcoming with all the people and the tempting smells coming from the bakeries and eateries. get a little shopping done and then go eat! save for anthro, i'm pretty sure all the vendors are local. i love that.

i've been wanting to take ben for a while. and he loved it.
and i said,

"there are few things that make me happier than when i want us to go try something and you love it."

If you have a lot knives you don't want to live in the Midwest, especially in "Tornado Alley"....remember all of those knives flying around in TWISTER. I will settle for the smells and the unique atmosphere...most of all the lobster
. Can you get reservations for Friday night. Meet us at the bus stop from LaGuardia
