Does anyone remember a restaurant called Chelsea Place? I am sitting here going through the archives of my mind reminiscing all of the interesting and great restaurants that I was lucky enough to have eaten in back in the 1970s. Fist up was Il Tre Merli, then there is Il Vagabondo but the one that will forever stand alone in my mind of interesting and different places was Chelsea Place. To read someone asking if anyone remembered it on Google search was just the jolt I needed to find it again. I am sad to read that is long gone since I would love to take my now husband to it, but such is progress and climbing real estate values.

I remember being taken there and walking into the "store" with all the antiques. Considering I love antiques and graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, I wasn't ready for what I was about to experience and what a pleasant surprise it was. To walk through the "wardrobe" only to be taken into a full blown restaurant....KUDOS to the person who came up with this amazing idea.
