Expert review of Cookshop
This far west Chelsea eatery is known for its locally sourced cuisine as well as for its fashionable and connected crowd. Chef Marc Meyer melds American and Mediterranean fare in innovative ways.
Meyer uses only regional and sustainable ingredients from farms in the tri-state area; the grass-fed meat and poultry are certified humane. The menu changes regularly and the wine list is distinctive and varied with a number of great reds and whites, including biodynamic wines from New York state.
The Hudson Valley Rabbit is probably my favorite dish on the menu. It features fava beans and salsa verde, all fresh and flavorful.
The décor is comfortable but funky. Bamboo and white oak were used in a lot of the interior. I particularly liked the handmade tiles on the walls.
The staff are well trained and get you your drinks and food in a rapid fashion. They also know their wine and are happy to educate customers on where and how the food is sourced.
On a stretch of 10th Avenue that features a few other good restaurants, wine shops and stores. It's near the Highline so head there after your meal.
Understandably, it's expensive. Dinner for two? Over $100.
