What To Order @ THE CHESTER, NYC
THE CHESTER, New York City’s trendy and celebrity-filled restaurant situated inside the Meatpacking district’s hip Gansevoort Hotel, has recently opened a second location in midtown at 45 East 33rd Street in midtown and already celebrities like Tatyana Ali, VIPs, and locals are flocking there for the outstanding contemporary American fare!
I stopped by the other day for dinner, and had such a good time went again for a second meal!
The fried chicken is crispy on the outside, but juicy on the inside… Served with a tea brine and thai dressing that provides the ultimate kick, this fried chicken is not like grandma would make it, and that’s quite alright! Succulent and light, easy and loaded with flavor the fried chicken at The Chester is just as addicting as the pork belly photographed below!
The pork belly entree at The Chester is simply divine. The presentation of the loin of pork served on a wooden board is worth the order alone, but one bite of the seasoned meat with a tender body and crispy skin and any foodie will cherish the the perfect dichotomy of texture and taste that is delivered with each dynamic bite!
And aside from other classic dishes with awesome twists such as fish, pasta, salads, and steak, The Chester also is a happening spot for happy hour! With ingenious signature cocktails like the West Side below, The Chester offers a fun, relaxed and easy vibe that is perfect for chill time with friends and co-workers, catching up with family, or a low-key simple date! (Swift, friendly and good-looking service at The Chester won’t hurt your visit either!)
